"Great recipe for big slabs of mild-flavored cold water white fish. The seasonings were mild enough not to overpower the flavor of the fresh Alaskan halibut I fixed. I also baked at a higher temp (425) for a shorter time (15 minutes). Delicious!"

"Easy and tasted good. Will make again."

"The seasoning is excellent but the cooking temperature and time makes for a very tough fish. It looked "off" to me, but I tried it anyway, just so I could give a fair review. I will definitely make this again because the flavor was good, but in the future, I will be baking at 425F for 13 minutes, as I normally would."

"I liked it. I think it would be a bit better if it was baked w/ lemon slices on the fish. Easy to make."

"This really turned out well. I wasn't sure what to expect, but will definitely make it again. The juices work very well with the lemon pepper seasoning."
