I fixed this for a husband who LOVES fish and two 8-year old picky eaters. There were no leftovers! I served it with yellow rice and mixed vegetables. The whole meal was done and on the table...

I made this last night and it was very good. I used the remaining liquid from the fish to make a sauce by adding a little cornstarch, milk and parmesan cheese. It turned out suprisingly well....

Couldn't be simpler. You really don't need anything else, though sometimes I like to add some salsa as a topping. Works just as well with limes.

This was so quick and easy I couldn't believe it was already done! And it tasted great, even my picky boyfriend was impressed.

This was great fish. I didn't not have a lemon so I used lemon juice. I distributed 1 tbsp per piece of fish on each side. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable. Will definitely make ag...

I rubbed the fish with EVOO and then coated with lemon pepper seasoning. Was not bland at all this way. Oh, and I baked it - 400 for 10 mins. Kids loved it (of course they though it was chicken)!

I didn't have a fresh lemon, but used lemon juice. Very good.

so easy, and very good. my fiancee' thinks im a gourmet cook. i get all my recipes from here. i love this one!

Very bland! Definitely won't make this one again.
