    The best tilapia recipe I have found on the Internet. The right blend of seasoning and sauce for tilapia. Only caveat: prep time for sauce is best for when you have time; best for a weekend or special occasion. The other tilapia recipes I have used will always follow this one in preference!

    This was fantastic. The flavors were really great. Even my husband, who is not a huge fan of fish, really loved this. I didn't have fresh tomatillos on hand, so I used a can of crushed tomatillos. I skipped the sauteeing step and put everything directly into the blender. Once blended, I transferred it a pan and heated it on the stove top while I cooked the fish. I added a dash of ground chipotle pepper.

    As another reviewer said, this is one of the best tilapia recipes out ther; actually I've used this recipe on catfish and other fish of simular texture. The sauce can be used with many different Mexican dishes.

    This is positively delicious! The sauce is divine. We made it last night and I cannot wait to have it again. It's not too spicy, kind of smoky, and perfect with guacamole on the side. It takes a little longer than I'd like for a weeknight meal but was well worth the wait. I plan to use it the next time we entertain for a smaller crowd. So glad this recipe was available !

    I didn't think this was as great as others, sauce was very good, but time consuming. Not worth the effort in my opinion!

    My husband and I loved this! A little spicy, but the roasted pepper sauce adds a cooling taste to the spice.

    Easy to make and the sauce is delicious! The tomatillo sauce is outstanding! I've made it twice since my original try with the talapia because it goes so well with Chile Rellenos or other dishes. This is a keeper!
