This recipe is fantastic. I love it. I omitted the breadcrumbs,and used crushed up crackers instead. I also broiled the fish for about 5 minutes after baking just to crisp it up a little.

Not for me! If you do make this recipe make sure you use fresh lemons as the bottled kind dominate the flavor too much.

Yummy! I made a larger volume of the topping by doubling the parmesan cheese, mustard (Honey Dijon was all I had on hand) and mixing in about 2 Tbsp softened butter. It was delicious and my husband loved it. I served it with wild rice and asparagus.

Even my sister, who usually despises fish, ate all of this delicious dinner. I added a little bit of butter on the filets before cooking (which were the frozen type, too!) and then dipped the fish into Honey Mustard salad dressing. This made up for the lack of sauce on top. It was a fabulous fish dish; quick and easy, and very yummy!!!!

My family and I loved this! The flavor was terrific. I used brown mustard. It was a little thick for spreading on the fish so I added a few drops of olive oil. I used this on both tilapia and salmon and it was wonderful! Will definately make again!

This was a hit! I doubled the paste to get a thicker cover, and I also added some white cooking wine. Next time, I will broil the fish for a few minutes to try to crisp up the "crust". I already have a request for this fish for next week!

This was incredibly easy and I was able to make it tonight without running to the store for ingredients I don't keep on hand. I will definitly make this again!

One of our favorites!! Very tasty and the mustard helps cut some of the fishy flavor. Have tried mustard mixture on other types of fish and just love it!
