Amazing! Found this a while back and I have made it SO many times now. I am a HUGE fish lover and this is my favorite recipe so far. Quick and easy too!

This is basically a fish picatta. I adore picatta, so I loved this!

I've made this twice and have yet to try it (I'm a vegetarian), but my husband loves it! Said it's the tastiest fish he's ever had!

Very flavorful dish for such a simple recipe. I made as directed. I used a smaller baking dish so that this fish touched each other without overlapping. I wanted the sauce to completely cover the fish . So easy! Definitely will make again. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
