Very tasty fish recipe. I made this using Tilapia and used rice bread crumbs which worked great.

Delicious! Made as written but cut the mayo back to 1/3 cup, with six Tilapia fillets. Served with lemon wedges.

Great fish! I used tilapia that was fairly thick so used the whole 25 minutes for cooking. I skipped the oregano and parsley but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
