***** Excellent. I melted the butter in the dish I used for baking and mixed the lemon juice with it. I then had a lovely spicy sauce to dip the fish in. I used just a dash of cayenne and found the dish perfectly spiced. Sep 22, 2005

***** This is very similar to the spices I use when blackening fish, without all the fuss, mess and smoke in the kitchen! We like spicy, and this was. I made the recipe as written, and it turned out very good. I think next time though,I will drizzle a little of the melted butter/lemon over the fillets before cooking, as the thinner parts of the fish came out just a tad dry. Very good none the less. It was quick an easy. I served it with a spicy rice and beans dish and sauteed zucchini, onions and tomatoes. Next time I'll make some cornbread too!Thanks! May 8, 2003, 5 members found this helpful

***** Very good recipe, and very tasty. The tilapia itself is a softer fish, so if it's baked just long enough, the batter gives it a slight crust. I don't mind spicy foods at all, but thought it was going to be too spicy for my wife as written. However, I went ahead and made it to recipe anyway, and it turned out fine.
