Used non-stick foil instead of greased rack & tilapia came out tasty and crispy. Also used whole wheat linguine instead of spinach fettuccine. Also cut back on butter and used EVOO to make recipe healthier. Pasta had great flavor. Fish went well with the pasta - but we thought that squeezing lemon over the fish would help the fish compliment the meal. You just need to add spinach salad & fruit to complete the supper. This is a recipe that we will add to our "fish on Fridays" rotation. (My husband suggested preparing the fish with cumin/cayenne in the Panko and serving with rice/beans & avacado/tomato salad to change things up for a different meal, will try this too!)

Love it! This is a great recipe! I've made it twice in one week. Made it last night for family that came over and they loved it. When making the fish, I sprinkle smoked paprika on the fish before putting it in the Panko crumbs. I also put my rack on top of my pan. Put fish on the rack and cook asparagus in the pan (foil lined for easy cleanup) under the fish/rack. Lightly toss asparagus in olive oil, finely chopped garlic, salt and pepper. After putting fish on rack, move rack and sprinkle left over Panko crumbs over asparagus and cook the fish and asparagus together. When the fish is done, so is the asparagus. Also made Zataran'a rice pilaf. Yummmm

Fish was very good and crispy. My very picky son even loved it. I will use this recipe often.

We eat a lot of fish in our house so I'm always looking for new recipes. We liked this dish very much. The fish was crispy and the pasta was the perfect complement to it. It is going into the "Keeper" file for sure.

This is my family's favorite meal of choice. I substituted the panko with Italian seasoned breadcrumbs and was still very happy with the out come. It's simple yet elegant enough for a dinner for company. You cannot go wrong with this one!
