I used Panko Italian Style Bread Crumbs and feel this added flavor. It was excellent - fast, easy and tasty.

This is quick,easy,and is good. Everyone who has changed this recipe in any way and then writes a review is really reviewing their own recipe and not this one.

Very simple recipe, my fiance really enjoyed it. I thought the outer crust on the fish wasn't thick enough, so perhaps next time I'll use bread crumbs and flour, as well as less mustard. Might try using eggs or buttermilk to help get a thicker coat, and well as double coating them.

Love this easy recipe.I also substitute the mustard with flavored salad dressing such as peppercorn ranch.Anything that might give it some extra flavoring that my 6 year old would tolerate.

I used mayo rather than mustard based on the previous rating and my family wasn't impressed with it. There wasn't much flavor to it. I can see how the mustard would give it some flavor and next time I'm going to try it as well as some other seasonings. However, the recipe was super easy to follow and it was a very quick and easy meal. I give that part 5 stars.

Excellent, fast, and easy dish -- will make time and time again. I noticed a lot of people here, like me, aren't big fans of mustard. The recipe calls for 2 tbsp for 4 fillets (1 tbsp for 2 fillets), but you can get away with using about 1 tsp for every 2 fillets -- it'll be just enough to give the rest of the coating something to stick to and give the dish a little twang without imparting a distinct mustard flavor. Also, I would recommending spraying the baking pan before placing the fillets on it. That way, the cheese won't fly off.
