It turned out great. I didn't have the fresh parsley so I used dried. Everyone loved it.

Fantastic, the first time I cooked it I was in love. I'm about to make it for my husband for dinner. I'm hoping he loves it too

Delicious!! My husband loved this recipe and wants me to do it again, again and again. We also tried with salmon. It was amazing!
Erin R. 12 Jun 2016
Excellent and super easy. Will definitely make again. Very yummy sauce. I like that it is one dish in oven and super fast. I found you had to cook it longer then it said in my oven - but I had a good amount of fish so it was layered a little in the pan.

Simply AMAZING. We paired this with "The Best Pan Fried Breakfast Potatoes". And all I can say is amazing. They paired perfectly together. When you make it, make sure you don't get rid of the sauce! Pour it on your plate and dip the potatoes in it. The sauce is amazing and so is this dish! Will make many more times, thank you!!

I made the recipe exactly as it was listed and it was delicious! I normally don't like to make tilapia because it's hard to get any real flavor into them, but this recipe was easy and my family loved it (including my 2 toddlers that are very picky when it comes to fish!)
Robert R. 19 May 2016
This recipe was quick and easy and came out very flavorful. My 8 year old son is a very picky eater and he ate a whole filet and was asking for more.
Dixon G. 14 May 2016
