I made this recipe exactly as written, except I used a little more tomato than what it called for (because I needed to use some up). No bitterness from the lemon. I am sure this recipe is going to be one I'll go to often. I loved everything about it! I put it together when I got home from work and I served it over white rice that I had made previously (I steamed it back to soft and fluffiness). Just perfect!!

This is very good. The fish was cooked perfect and I loved the capers and tomatoes. I agree that next time I don't think I'll fry the lemons but maybe sprinkle some lemon juice over the fish once it's plated. I served this with buttered green beans. Thanks.

This was ok. I'm not a real big fan of sea-beasties, but thought I'd give this a shot. I agree with one of the reviews, I prefer fish to be breaded and fried crispy. Thanks for posting. My husband really liked it.

Followed the directions exactly, but it turned out to be way too salty. I think I prefer baked crusty fish to this dish with watery sauce. Sorry.

Thanks for an excellent recipe! I used canned diced tomatoes and it turned out great!

Followed recipe exactly, but I wasn't overwhelmed. Hubby and I found it rather bland.

Wonderful recipe. I will skip sauteing the lemons next time, cooking lemons gave the dish a bitter taste. This we will eat again and again. Many thanks!!!!

Tilapia is such a mild flavoured fish that it needs something to make it interesting - the "crazy water" did the trick! The sauce was colourful & very flavourful with just the right amount of heat for our taste buds. I'll make this again without changing a thing. Thanx GP!
