Made this recipe for dinner tonight - loved it! The panko and cheese topping is so light and yummy. Next time, I will omit the salt completely. Baked in my oven in 20 minutes to golden brownness and flaky delicious fish. Served with steamed fresh veggie medley. I will definitely make this again! Thanks!

My frozen flounder turned out like mush.

The only deviation from the recipe was to brown it under the broiler at the end to give more eye appeal. I couldn't really taste the flounder enough that I'd pay $12.99/lb again, so next time I will substitute more affordable tilapia. We enjoyed this dish.

Good enough for a quick dinner. I skipped brushing filets with butter, sprinkled them with lemon pepper instead and added some dill weed to the breadcrumb mix instead of thyme. Mom said they could use a little more Parmesan, and I thought they had plenty as is. I did like the way panko crisped and browned giving the dish a nice crispy topping. Will probably make again.

I was worried that the fish would be dry, but it was as moist as could be. Really, I changed quite a bit because of what I had on hand. I had thawed some haddock, so that is the fish that I used. Also, I did not have panko breadcrumbs, but instead had seasoned breadcrumbs which is what I used. Because of this, I didn't also add thyme. I added the salt to the fish prior to putting the crumb topping on. I found that it was WAY too salty, but it could have been because I did this, although Parm cheese is salty and I questioned the quantity of salt before adding it. That would be my only complaint. Next time, I will make it this same way, only I won't bother with added salt, pepper or thyme. I never use pepper, so I've got the recipe down to four ingredients. Amazingly good and easy. I rarely cook fish because I've not been happy with options for cooking it; now I'll have it much more often. Yay!

This is very tasty but it needs some seasoning added to the panko mixture and the topping could be too overpowering if used in the quantity called for. I added a lemon-pepper seasoning mix to the crumbs and reduced the topping by almost half and it turned out just right. I will definitely use this method again on flounder as well as other light fish such as tilapia.

My 17 year old daughter who has never cooked fish before made this for dinner tonight. I think it is one of the easiest and best recipes I have tasted. She followed the recipe exactly. It barely made it to the table because we were all tasting it before she could put it on the serving plate. This one went right into my recipe box. Thanks so much for sharing.

Easy and quick. Made this first time in December, and made it a couple of times again already. My twelve year old and one of his ten year old friends gave it thumbs up and wanted seconds. Based on reviews, did leave out salt and added some lemon pepper to panko (plus some dried parsley for pretty color more than anything else.) Good meal with minimal fuss.
