I love tilapia and very much liked this recipe with the following adjustments. Melted swiss gets a little too gummy for my taste, so I used shredded fresh parm. Steak seasoning is on the salty side, so I made up my own seasoning blend. For those of you who've never eaten tilapia, as with most fish does not taste fishy at all. If it does smell funky, take it back. Thanks Rena!

I used bottled lemon juice, Shredded Mozzerella and Tones Canadian Steak Seasoning (what I had on hand) - awesome! Can't wait to eat the left overs tomorrow.



This recipe is great for people who do not enjoy the taste of fish(my wife). I did'nt have any fresh lemons so i used bottled lemon juice, did'nt matter this dish is easy and very good.
