This is the easiest and tastiest fish you'll serve. Even finicky eaters who think they don't like fish will love it because it lacks a fishy taste and is beautiful and flakey. —Kim Russell, North Wales, Pennsylvania

" never ceases to amaze me that people want to cook fish but do everything possible to "keep the fishy taste out". Cook something else.

There is nothing worse than a nondescript tasting fish (tilapia I. e.) that you have to add a dozen or so herbs etc. to have some taste that's not even FISH.
There is not a fish that swims that is nothing short of incredible in and of it's on merit in taste.
Fry it, poach it, bake it, grill it, stew it, roast it and everything else..."

"This was not the greatest recipe. It was ok on the salmon, but the tilapia it was not good. I think it needed to soak in milk before marinading it to get some of the fishy taste out."

"Not bad...just didn't have much flavor. The marinade smelled amazing but maybe it just needs to sit longer. I marinaded mine for about 20 minutes. I might try this recipe again sometime since it was easy and I feel has potential."

"I made this last night and it was a hit with my fish loving husband. I'm not much of fish eater, but I thought it was good as well. I had two cod fillets in the freezer, but wanted to make enough for leftovers as well. I couldn't find cod at the store, so I bought flounder fillets. We both think the marinade was even better with the flounder."
