cook at 425 for 17 minutes, used egg instead of oil so it would stick better and it turned out really well 😊
I was surprised at how this had come out. I think that I may use egg next time so that the parmesan crust can stick better. It was hard for it to hold when I baked it. If anyone has suggestions on how to avoid that then let me know.

Great! Easy and tasty. Have used with Perch and Pollock, too.
everyone loved it! i added a bit more paprika and generally went with what i felt might add more flavor (i didnt measure anything...)
This recipe was so easy and great tasting too!

Very good and easy to make
I wasn't too crazy about this one... I had a better version of this recipe that didn't include paprika and required you to mix the parmesan with mayo... It was fantastic.

Super easy and delicious.
it was delicious! it crisped to a perfect golden crust. i loved how it was flavorful, but not so over powering that you didn't lose the rich flavor of the tilapia!!

Absolutely delicious!
Turned out pretty well considering I used shredded parmesan (instead of grated), but I think next time I'll mix marinate the fish with a little lemon juice beforehand, rather than adding it dropwise afterward.

It was good and will definitely make it again.
I cooked it for my mom for mothers day. The whole family loved it!
pretty good...i would make it again. I increased the measurements of paprika and used garlic salt.
tasted pretty good! the first attempt was kind of bland, but i used more paprika the second time around and it tasted great! the thumbnail image is a bit deceiving, since it makes it look crispier than it is, but the video in the recipe shows how it will actually turn out
Fantastic !! I love salmon and this is as flavorful as it gets

Unfortunately I had no paprika, but I did use some garlic salt instead and man it was good! I am really not a fish person, but my husband is and he loved it too.

Delicious! I wish I had taken a picture...maybe next time. The tilapia turned out great! Quick and easy recipe. Less than five min to even put together.
My family loved it! My kids ages are 9 to 14. They told me it's their favorite fish recipe yet! I added planko crumbs to give it some crunch.

Sooo good, smelled a little due to the cheese. Also made a side of brown rice and corn 😋👌🏾
Pretty tasty! I used haddock instead just because that's what I had and it worked out!
Would make again. Tastes good so try it out since it’s easy
Delicious, simple and quick.
Good, little oily use less oil next time.
