Cornmeal Crusted Tilapia Sandwiches with Lime Butter

    This is my go to recipe for tilapia - a nice quick weekday meal. I quite like the crust but I cook my fillets in a cast iron pan with just a small amount of oil. The lime butter is a great addition!

    This was a great quick weeknight dinner. The lime butter was a nice touch, but I think it may almost be better if it was lime mayo. Next time I think I'll replace the butter with low-fat or fat-free mayo. That would make it just a little creamier and cut the heat of the breading a little bit too.

    I agree with previous reviewers that the lime butter got lost on the sandwich which was disappointing because it was a great flavor. I didn't love the breading on this fish, but my BF liked the sandwich overall. I probably won't make it again.

    This sandwich wasn't very exciting. The cornmeal provided a nice texture, but I didn't think the crust had much flavor. The lime butter was good on our corn on the cob, but got "lost" on the sandwich. While this wasn't bad, I don't think I'll be making it again.

    These were easy and delicious! I didn't change a thing. Served with sweet potato fries.

    This was a simple and inexpensive recipe. At first, I wasn't sure if there was going to be a lot of taste, but the spicy cornmeal mix along with the cooling lime butter was perfect. I started off broiling it like it instructed, but my broiler pan was smoking up my oven so I ended up pan-frying it a little in some canola oil and it turned out terrific! I also lightly buttered the rolls and fried them in the pan instead of toasting them, then added the lime butter.

    This is a new favorite in our house! I followed the recipe exactly (with the exception of corriander, since I didn't have on hand) and it turned out great. Very tasty. I didn't make the lime butter, but made a spicy remoulade instead. My husband and I both love the crunch from the cornmeal. I look forward to making this again.

    Very good, quick, and easy. Used Ancho Chili powder instead of regular. The lime butter was Excellent.

    Based on other reviewers, I made a lime mayo (with garlic in mine) instead of the butter. I also used flounder instead of tilapia because that is what I had on hand. Served with recommended coleslaw and red grapes. We would make this again.
