I used to make this in the oven, but then I discovered that microwave lets me enjoy it even faster. It's a pretty dish to serve company. In fact, many of my friends and family now cook this at home. —Nancy Daugherty, Cortland, Ohio

"Recipe probably isn't all that awful. Cod is just not a tasty fish. Will never do this one again."

"Yes, I will make this again. I thought it very tasty in-spite of the fact I did not have any seafood seasoning on hand for the recipe."

"This was delicious. I omitted the oil and salt to cut fat and sodium content and threw a sliced, precooked red potato and 1 cup of sugar snap peas in the same dish to cook for the last 4 minute for a complete meal."

"I'm not a big fish eater, but I enjoyed this dish. Definitely not too fishy tasting and I didn't need any tartar sauce to help it go down. Just the right amount of flavor. Very easy to make and I took Jill Balkema's advise and baked it. Thank you Nancy Daugherty for sharing your recipe with us; it was great. My husband and 16-year-old son also really liked it. :)"
