Reviews for Grilled Greek Fish
"I forgot to get the fish marinating in time for dinner so I was only able to marinate it for about 15 mins. It was all right, but not much flavor. I will make it again and marinate it longer to see if it has a better flavor. I also cooked it in a pan for about 2 mins per side."
"I really likes this recipe, although the husband thought it had too much lemon juice."
"A healthy and convenient go-to meal with a fresh balance of flavor from the lemon and herbs."
"very flavourful, I did marinate it for about 4hrs. however, and, added capers as a garnish"
