    I have no idea what the previous commenters are talking about when they said that the seasoning was “a little light” or that it was “bland”. Hello… Salt much? Everyone in my household absolutely loved the flavor of this dish. (It was served alongside oven-roasted peas and cauliflower.) Instead of pan-searing tilapia (which has been our go-to up until tonight) I will ALWAYS bake it. Next time I will use my home-made taco seasoning and instead of freshly squeezed lemon juice, I will use lime juice. If one were making fish tacos I am willing to wager that this seasoning choice would be a hit!

    Great! Definitely added salt to taste. It’s bland with the recommended seasoning but still a great meal. Very clean and healthy; also great for meal prep

    Easy to make! Perhaps follow up recommendations for a dressing or sauce would be great!

    Great dish. I think it would be perfect with any white fish you choose. Be careful not to overcook, or it will be dry and tough. I cooked it for seven minutes, and it was perfect. I used Spanish paprika, which is a little mild. I might amp it up a bit with hot Russiam paprika. Otherwise, it was perfect.
