  7. I think I'll be making this tonight! Can I use panko breadcrumbs?

  8. This was fantastic with panko! My broiler was a little too intense so I might try baking the fish first and then finishing it under ther broiler. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. Again, so easy and so yummy. Since I've discovered your site, I've been making fish twice a week, trying a recipe of your's each week. My 3 year old has now eaten fish every meal for the past month - she would've never tried fish before. She loves it! Thank you!

  12. I never cooked fish any other way than fried. In fact I tried fish baked and broiled and never liked fish any other way than fried. Now that I am trying to eat healthier, I figure why not try it again. I tried this recipe and I must say I LOVE IT!!! Healthy and delicious, what a great combination. Thanks Gina

  13. This was really good! Thanks :) I didn't broil it, but oven baked it...and unfortunately, I didn't have a clove of garlic. I used garlic powder instead and it would have been much better w/ the minced garlic! But still, a keeper :)

  14. Made this tonight with a couple minor adjustments, I didn't have whole wheat bread crumbs so I used panko. I also used jarred minced garlic instead of fresh. (it's a weeknight so I was feeling a little lazy after work). Turned out excellent, was so simple and I will definitely make it again!

  21. I don't like tilapia is it ok to use salmon fillet or ocean perch

  22. So how long did you end up broiling it? I'm not very good at cooking fish, but I want to get better because it's so good and healthy!
