  1. ahh.. that's a beautiful thing…crispy topping…who wouldn't like that…what's the spicy version… could be good with curry?

  2. Thanks man!! I will, actually, Try this tonight.. I think. I have some of that fish in the freezer. It is frozen and about 3 weeks old so.. It is still good right.. lol I will cook it like this and let you know how it turns out. Not sure what veggies Quite yet. This is a plan. Thanks Buck. I know whats for supper.

  3. Clever way to make those frozen filets taste good! I think ill try using Greek yogurt instead of mayo cause my stomach is sensitive to mayo

  4. I'm getting so sick of hospital
    and REHA food. Couple more weeks
    and I'll be back in my kitchen
    putting these fine inspirations to work!

  5. I do the mayo trick on halibut cause it is such a dry fish especially the day after….Also mayo and teriyaki is a good combo….I gotta try your way with the dill…Sounds like it would go great with fish..

  6. I keep a bag of tilapia in the freezer cuz it's hard out here for a pimp! lol This is a great recipe! Thanks Chef Jon and Camera Girl!

  7. I was looking for a recipe for baked tilapia and view quite a few videos about it.  I'm going with yours tonight.  I like the seasoned mayo as panko glue and the onions underneath.  Thanks

  8. Thanks Chef! I was hoping somewhere in the video that you would say something of the sorts to " Do whatever the hell you want" or " Put as much the hell you want!" Ya know your empowering me to do whatever the hell I want in cookin! 

  9. I have watched and enjoyed many of your cooking videos. You provide simple, easy to follow and flavorful techniques to many of the foods I like and I suspect your channel viewers like also. Good luck. Mike e

  10. yea, i like salmon and all, but i prefer tilapia… it's just an awesome fish that you can do anything with.

    you can also brine some of those cheap tilapia fillets, dry them out in the fridge, and then bake them at a low temp to create homemade fish jerky.

  11. Try to stay away from the Chinese sourced farm raised tilapia. One study claimed it was even less healthy than bacon because of what they're fed.

  12. Like the video but I like tilapia to I don't care for salmon but I don't like that you say he's cheap that's really messed up but good video

  13. heat was to high for the amount of time, I did recipe exactly like he said and my fish came out extremely over cooked with the edges almost black! waste of food and had to start all over again! UUGH!!!!

  14. Thanks for an excellent recipe! I've been searching for a good recipe where I don't have to FRY the fish and completely trash-out my stove. Placing the tilapia over onion is brilliant. The onions caramelized beautifully. I'll be making it again.
