    Made this for my husband and he loved it! We also tried it with Basa instead of Tilapia. He enjoyed it both ways.

    This is a great dish. I usually fry tilapia, so this baked recipe is a nice change. Next time I may double the garlic powder and be a bit more generous with the paprika, as it just needed a bit more flavor. Overall this is quite tasty.
