I really liked the fish in this recipe. 1/2 c. flour was way too much. Next time I would start with half as much and add more if needed. That said, it was one of the best preps for tilapia i've done with CL. The polenta wasn't a hit with my family. I only had dried oregano, so that may have been a factor. The Warm Spinach salad was really good and I will make that again.

I only made the fish, and served with couscous and mixed veggies. The fish was delicious, the coating was tasty and crisp for oven fried. The timing was perfect, will definitely make this again. Next time I will try the warm spinach salad.

I wasn't crazy about the spices in the panko coating (may have been the combo of celery seed & sage on fish); just my personal taste. Also, felt 2 tablespoons of fresh oregano (maybe a misprint & should say teaspoons?) was way too much in the grits; the oregano was overpowering. Served with CL Wilted Spinach. Definately would need to play around with the spices if I make this one again. Note: Watch the panko closely; it browns quickly (almost ruined mine).

My whole family loves this: I've made it three times in the last month! I used a slightly heavier hand with the herbs to boost the flavor, but the fish and the polenta are delicious. This is a keeper!
