    Used halibut and half panko/half seasoned breadcrumbs totalling 1/4 cup. Excellent & so incredibly easy. Served with steamed brocolli & oven roasted, skin-on red & yukon gold potato.

    Easy, quick and delicious. I used panko with a light coating of cooking spray rather than drizzling with butter but otherwise stuck to the recipe. The flavors nicely complemented the cod and I will definitely make this again.

    I made this for dinner tonight with a salad, so delicious! My husband caught some speckled trout yesterday and so I figured I'd give it a try. It was amazing, the fresh breadcrumbs gave it a nice texture and the mayo/lime juice combo seasoned the fish nicely. I did add some kosher salt to the fish prior to topping with mayo mix. It was great, I'm sure the fact that the fish was straight out of the gulf the day before helped a lot! We froze the rest of the fish so I will make again, even for company. My 4 year old gave a "yummy" review too. :)

    My family eats a lot of fish and we have become very picky. This recipe was so easy and I was so pleased at the wonderful results. I used panko and light butter to reduce the calories and fat. I also used cod. It was so delicious! I served with corn on the cob and a broccoli, mushrooms saute. I very low calorie, healthy dinner.

    I LOVE this recipe because it can be prepared in a flash! I usually use tilapia because it is easy to get and inexpensive. Have made this several times.

    Have made this recipe countless times but since I'm having it for dinner again tonight I thought I'd add my 2 cents. I'm using tilapia fillet so the cooking time is shorter. I usually stick to the recipe but have added dried thyme or oregano to the breadcrumbs which I usually use dried. Will serve this as an oven only meal with roasted sweet potato fries and roasted asparagus.

  • katiesue Posted: 10/23/09

    Super easy and quite tasty. I would not serve it for a dinner party because it is a bit bland, but it makes a great weeknight staple. My young kids ate it up! We thought it definitely needed some salt. Used tilapia but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Served with roasted broccoli and jasmine rice. Good, basic, healthy recipe.

  • Tamcooks Posted: 02/05/10

    Delicous and will make again! I used mahi mahi and also added some herbs - dill and others - to the mayo mixture. Also, I didn't feel like bothering with "fresh" bread crumbs as the recipe calls for so used panko crumbs that I had on had. Topping was nice and crunchy.

  • Shgoodwin Posted: 07/19/09

    My daughter picked this recipe and it was a hit with all 5 family members. We used Haddock and served it with corn on the cob and sauteed zuccini and summer squash. VERY quick - prep time less than 10 min. Would not hesitate to serve this at an informal dinner party.

  • DebraRS Posted: 08/03/09

    I love the recipe. I tend to use flounder and I add parm cheese in the bread crumbs. I also use olive oil instead of butter.

    I've tried this recipe two times and each time the fish has turned out like mush. Obviously I am doing something wrong given all the other rave reviews, but I have to throw in the towel on this one.

  • cookfromsocal Posted: 11/20/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I used halibut and Italian breadcrumbs I had. I sprinkled the breadcrumbs on the fish so didn't use 1/2 cup. The breadcrumbs were mushy so will drizzle the butter first, then the breadcrumbs the next time I fix this or maybe fresh breadcrumbs will be better. Will see. The flavor was good and easy to put together. A definite repeat.

  • Lcooks Posted: 04/24/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I love this recipe! My husband does not like fish at all, and even he loved this one! I discovered it while trying new recipes for giving us a healthier diet. I made it with tilapia and served it with white cheese macaroni and steamed broccoli. This is so easy it is perfect for busy weekdays!

  • kindred1 Posted: 07/23/09

    Ok. Needs a little more flavor. Next time I will double the sauce and add more herbs and spices. I'm going to try one more time and see if it turns out a little better.

  • LuvToCook1 Posted: 04/02/09

    This recipe was very easy, quick to make, and delicious. Next time, I think I will double the sauce that is spread on the fish. Hubby thought it needed more sauce too! This recipe is a keeper.

  • tghazey Posted: 03/18/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Amazing and quick. Made a few modification based on what I had in the pantry. Used bottled lemon juice instead of lime (excellent). Also increased the onion powder. I only had Italian breadcrumbs, which I was worried about - but it tasted fantastic!! Also, lined the pan with tin foil for easy clean up. Fast and tasty!

  • dpkp03 Posted: 03/09/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I have prepared this dish many times - always to rave reviews. I use Duke's mayonnaise and squeeze lime juice from the green plastic bottle. One time I was out of onion powder so I substituted garlic powder with good results. I've also prepared it with several different types of mild fish. For easy cleanup, be sure to line your pan with aluminum foil. Easy ~ fast ~ delicious.

  • MartyMullen Posted: 03/24/09

    A good way to bread and bake fillets but a bit blah. I would recommend adding something for more flavour next time.

  • kathraff Posted: 05/11/09

    I prepared this for Mother's Day dinner. It was soooo easy and very very delicious. There was an audible "mmmmm" around the table as everyone took their first bite. 5 adults ate a little more than a pound and a half of tilapia in a short amount of time - I felt like I should've made more. I'll be serving this for family and friends again and again.

  • EPMaxwell Posted: 04/23/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is absolutely delicious. I served with a side of steamed cheesy rice & broccoli. I had tilapia so that's what I used, and I also had panko, which worked perfectly. I might add some cajun seasoning to the fish before the mayo coating next time to give it a little more kick. But following the recipe, it was still light and delish!!!

  • Princess222 Posted: 01/06/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I love this easy, yet dinner party worthy recipe. I've made this numerous times and everyone loves it and want the recipe. Even my non-fish eating family loves this dish. The only adjustments to the recipe is I add 1 Tablespoon of light sour cream with the mayonnaise mixture; and I use Panko bread crumbs. This is a keeper recipe!

  • Belladonna714 Posted: 07/28/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is so delicious and so easy! I used, whole wheat panko breadcrumbs,kerrygold garlic herb butter,Haddock,(only took about 8 min in convection oven) and ommitted the parsely. I would definetly make this again!

  • edriver Posted: 08/06/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This was very good..but not great. I couldn't find haddock that looked like the pic, mine was thin and long, nevertheless, it was flaky and mild. I put breadcrumbs on both side, and the bottom was soggy, I also broiled the top for a few minutes to make it more crunchy. I will make this again, my finacee thought it was great, but he also loves fish more than me. Served w/ Spicy roasted potatoes & asparagus.

  • monsyd2 Posted: 10/20/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I made this exactly as the recipe shows except that I used Pollack, so I only baked it 15 minutes since it's thinner. This turned out yummy, but I think it lacked a spicy kick that would elevate it. Next time I will add some red pepper flakes. I will definitely add this to my "keeper" file!

  • dant83 Posted: 12/29/09

    Made this for the 1st time last night and it was amazing! I used haddock added some garlic powder and red pepper flakes along with the onion powder panko instead of fresh crumbs served with roasted broccoli and rice def a weeknight staple!!

    I made this recipe and thought it was good. I had to adapt to Gluten-Free so I used Tortilla Crumbs instead, and I thought that worked well. I will definitely try it again. It was very easy to make.

    This was the first time that I ever cooked fish in the house. We usually grill it outside. This recipe is the best. Everyone loved it. I bought 2 lbs of Cod which I cut up into fillets. We had more than enough (and some to give the cat). I think if I do this recipe with 2 lbs of fish again I will double the topping. So so good !!!!

    I loved this recipe, but my husband absolutely hated it! I'm not sure what he hated more - the taste or the smell. I'd make it again, but only for myself. I wouldn't make it for guests, out of fear that they'd have the same reaction as my husband.

    I followed the recipe as described. The flavors were fine. I don't usually bake fish as I have difficulty determining doneness. This is the perfect case. The taste of the fish was very good, but it was WAY over cooked. I will try this recipe again, but will sautee it in a pan rather than bake to prepare it. It's worth an attempt.

  • KSquared26 Posted: 05/25/10

    A great recipe but a little bland the first time we ate it. The second time I topped the cod with low-fat Caesar salad croutons I crushed in my blender before drizzling on the butter. I also added a little garlic powder to the crumbs. Much, much more flavorful!

    I made this two nights ago, and my husband and I both loved it. Very easy to make, and the topping had a lot of flavor. I will definetely be making this again. I did double the sauce topping, as it didn't seem like it would be enough.

    extremely tasty!! i loved it but i seemed to be the only one :( 1 kid wouldn't eat it, 1 kid thought it was good, and the man didn't say much. we are a garlic family so i think that might have made the difference. i will make this again (and again and again...) but add different seasoning to make the family like it. i used crushed rice chex to make it gluten free, instead of bread crumbs, don't think it would have made a difference but just wanted to make a note.

    Made with tilapia and lemon juice. At the last minute I realized I was out of limes. Because the fish was thinner and I had more pieces per pound, there was more area to spread the mixture over. I think I needed more mixture than I used because the fish seemed low in seasoning. I definitely would try this recipe again. It was very easy and still was eaten up.

  • mamita Posted: 08/15/12

    Excellent recipe! So easy to make and all ingredients always on hand. I tried this because I love fish but my husband and 2 small kids do not. Everyone LOVED this dish and asked for seconds. It was so easy too! Per another reviewers suggestion, I used Panko instead of bread crumbs and sprinkled fish with paprika and parmesan before baking. I served it with browned butter asparagus (my all time favorite CL recipe), couscous and french bread. Will absolutely make again.

  • bostonterr05 Posted: 10/06/12

    I omitted the mayonnaise and made my own marinade. Sprinkle onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and rub Boston Seafood seasoning front and back of tilapia. Sprinkle some olive oil and marinade it for 4 hours. I did use the panko and butter idea from this recipe and the fish came out awesome. I think next time, I will use half the butter and add olive oil to cut some of the guilt. :) Overall, it was a wonderful recipe and everyone will love!

  • buenacena Posted: 10/05/12

    Great recipe. The mayo keeps the fish nice and moist, and helps the breadcrumbs stick to the fish. I tried it with moonfish (never heard of this, but it was a white fish being sold at the Atlanta farmers market, tasted like halibut) and it was awesome. I subbed in gluten-free breadcrumbs and served with bok Choy and rice pasta. So easy, and husband loved it. I think any seasonings would work well - Parmesan, Italian, garlic powder, lemon pepper, etc.

    I love this recipe and make it often. It's easy and delicious. I mix the butter and breadcrumbs and then put the breadcrumbs on the fish because the drizzled butter runs off the fish (maybe I'm not patient enough to drizzle slowly).

  • CookingIsa Posted: 11/26/13

    This is truly an 'easy' recipe. We try to eat fish several times a week, and this has become one of my go-to recipes. Since I do not usually buy onion powder, I use chopped onions instead. One of my children does not like any type of breading, so I simply do not put any breadcrumbs on his piece. Otherwise, I follow the recipe to the letter, and it always comes out great.
