WOW! What an amazing way to cook tilapia- drenched in cornmeal, and pan fried. Not greasy at all , and it's very nice and golden. I have tried several other tilapia recipes, but this one is the best one yet! Fast and easy. My husband and 4-year-old loved it. I did not place it in the salad. I served it with couscus and steamed broccoli.

This recipe was really light & refreshing. Its a great summer meal. The mixture of the ingredients with the dressing was perfect. Added a little extra mustard to the dressing. The tilapia went well with the salad...I recommend using the salad recipe instead of one's own as the flavors really worked well together.

Since this is a salad I'm giving it 2 stars because the dressing is very bland (the dressing has potential). The only change I made was I did not use flour in my breading (breading becomes a little soggy with addition of flour to fish), instead I used all cornmeal. Everything else was great; but dressing needs work.

My husband and I make this recipe regularly. The dressing is wonderful but we usually reduce the amount of oil by about 1/2 to make it more flavorful and the oil less over-powering. It is probably not the best meal for week days unless you have completed the chopping prep ahead of time. Great recipe.

Fish was moist and cooked perfectly with this technique, although the breading didn't add a ton of flavor. Salad combination of toppings and dressing is great. I did add avocado to go with the tex-mex theme and it was a nice addition. I'm not sure how the dressing wouldn't be strong enough since it is essentially 50/50 lime juice and oil with some salt and dijon. Thought the balance of flavors was delicious.
