MY REVIEW

Easy and fast..sauce complements the fish flavor

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2012

Pretty tasty, though it came out pretty wet. Maybe I should have patted the fish fillets dry before baking? Unlike a previous reviewer, I thought the seasoning was great--kicky, but not overwhelming.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2010

This was good, but a little to much on the seasoning, I will cut it back the next time.
