    It was very nice, but I cooked it a few minutes longer and it slightly dried my salmon out. I enjoy a sauce with my salmon, but this was a very good substitute. Will try it again.

    Very easy to make, however, next time I'll make sure to salt the fish before adding the breadcrumb mix for sure.

    Easy, and good tasting. I added melted butter to the topping mix to help it stick together better. It toasted nicely.

    My salmon ended up being frozen but i had fresh tilapia on hand. I buttered the fish and then put the herb parmesean coating on top. It was the best tasting tilapia I've ever had! I had extra crust left over and saved it for another fish dish. I did add one clove of garlic to the crust and probably a higher parmesean to panko rating, but it made the fish taste almost buttery! Definitely doing this recipe again.

    turned out great! plank grilled it, so 5 minutes in the broiler after cooking browns the crust nicely

    We really enjoyed this. I did do it in a brown butter though saving some for the last step pouring over the top of the parm mix. Needed to go for a tad longer but that could have been due to the opening of the oven for sides. pairs well with cilantro lime rice.

    My husband hates fish, but I asked him to give me a chance to cook it for him. Guess what? He loved this recipe! I've made it twice already and he asked me when I'm going to make it again. Winner winner fish for dinner! I served it with a side of asparagus.

    Quite simple but very delicious. We used tilapia instead of salmon and it turned out great.

    Nice simple recipe. I might like to add crushed macadamia nuts for some crunch next time.
