This is a quick and easy dinner solution that is a big hit at my table. You can use perch, walleye, tilapia, and probably any other kind of fish you'd like. I find that everyone likes certain tastes, so feel free to spice it up however you like. I will sometimes add more of the ingredients on top of the fish before putting in the oven for more flavor.

Nice texture and wonderful flavor. I used Ritz crackers since they were on hand. I also would consider the Parmesean as a "required" item. There is something about it when combined with the other ingredients that makes this special. Read More

I'm sorry but this was a great disappointment. I followed the recipe closely except used bread crumbs instead of crackers. I was a bit wary of the "Italian" nature of the seasonings used on a delicate fish like walleye. The seasonings were not actually too strong but they were just wrong with the natural flavor of walleye. Just made the fish taste un-wonderful and walleye is expensive. I would have done better just to pan-fry with a light flour coating with salt pepper and lemon which would have complemented the fish. Sorry a complete fail for me. Read More

Delicious fast and easy! I've never made fish before but wanted to try it. I used Tilapia filets and Italian breadcrumbs instead of cracker crumbs and seasonings. My husband and kids ate every bite! I'll be making this again! Read More

I love this recipe but I add a bit more to it. Start with about a 1/4 cup crushed buttery garlic croutons 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley and coarsely ground black pepper to taste. Also instead of using parmesan cheese I use a three cheese blend of parmesan asiago and romano cheeses. I also like to add about and extra 2 Tablespoons of cheese blend to the mixture. Bake for thirty minutes and this fish dish is to die for! Read More

Turned out very good. I might have to attempt to make it a little healthier though bc it was soaking in butter which while it tasted good is pretty bad for you. Read More

This dish was amazing! Very simple to prepare. I switched the fish for tilapia and it came out fabulously. My wife quite enjoyed it when I made it for her. The seasoning can be done many different ways depending upon what you would like to add. I threw in some cayenne pepper to give it some heat. Overall delicious! Thanks! Read More
