Reviews for Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod
"Great recipe; even good leftover the next day in a sandwich!"
"I really liked this recipe, other than the fact that it was a bit too lemony for me. I will try this again without the lemon peel. I like another reviewer's suggestion of using panko too!"
"I really enjoyed it, but my husband did not. I think the lemon flavor was too strong. I think I would try again, and not pour the extra lemon butter over the top."
"I made this without flour. I mixed the ingredients into the butter and brushed it on and then poured the rest of the mixture into the pan. It came out great. It was a tad too buttery for me, but that's just me."
"Amazing! I used panko instead of flour and I ended up using 1/2 C. I followed everything else in the recipe. It was delicious. Served with boiled butter and parsley potatoes and spinach. Will be adding this recipe to my list of meals I make regularly."
"I liked this recipe. quick and easy. But the fish was soggy on the bottom. I will make it again, but will not pour all the extra butter/lemon sauce on top. Hopefully that will eliminate the soggy bottom."
"This was SO tasty and a HUGE surprise to me, given how simple the recipe seemed. Husband asked for it again the next week!"
"I followed the recipe exactly, but the fish was soggy and was not done. This recipe needs a longer cooking time. If I made it again and that's a big IF, I would cook for at least 25 minutes."
"I rarely cook fish but I decided that I needed to add more fish to my life. This dish was very good. I made it exactly like the recipe, except that I substituted TOH's California Garlic Pepper Blend rather than lemon pepper. I thought the flavor was very good but the flour was very soggy and didn't brown off even though the fish was done. I would make it again but add the seasonings directly to the fish rather than coat it in the flour."
"This was pretty good, as far as flavored go; however, I saw absolutely no reason for the flour. I enjoyed the topping; will probably add fresh dill next time."
