I thought this recipe was too simple. However is it terrific. My entire family ate every speck of fish and asked for more. they even asked if I would cook it again tomorrow. Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't have a cast iron pan I used my mom's ovenware and it came out great! love this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We don't like lime over here so we make it with lemon instead. Then we use the excess lemon butter from the pan and pour it over fresh steamed green beans. Heavenly! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband fishes a lot, so I am constantly looking for different ways to make crappie. This is far and away the best recipe I have found for making it. Seriously amazing! Despite what some wrote, I have used my cast iron skillets to cook this dish many, many times and never had a problem. item not reviewed by moderator and published
DO NOT USE LIME JUICE ON CAST IRON!!! I spent several hours seasoning my skillet, and this was the third thing I used it to cook. It completely stripped the seasoning from the pan. Food Network, you should know better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really great fast, simple recipe. Unfortunately I didn't think it through and I put the zest and S&P on first, so when I squeezed the lime juice on, it all kind of washed off the top. Tasted great anyway! I'll put the juice on first next time so my presentation is a little nicer. =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good! As someone who doesn't really love tilapia, I was skeptical since this recipe seemed so minimal. But honestly, it tastes great! Not too "fishy". Easy and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy and good. I didn't make any changes. I will def make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not sure where I could've went wrong because this was such a simple recipe, but I thought this was pretty tasteless.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe: quick and easy and very yummy. Plus it pleases kids and adults alike. The first time I make it, I used lemon b/c that's what I had in the house, and I omitted the butter b/c one of our dinner guests recently had a heart attack (no butter in the heart healthy diet!). Second time with lime and butter. Both just times just delicious and enjoyed by all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
