"Nice and moist but a little on the sweet side with the mayonaisse, perhaps it was the one I used."

"I substituted sour cream for the mayo and omitted the onions. It was very tasty, although the consistency of the sauce was not as creamy as I'd like. Will add asparagus next time like another review mentioned.

Overall delicious, will definitely make again."

"To: TableCrumbs - the 7 carbs come from the "reduced-fat mayonnaise and reduced-fat Parmesan cheese" as noted in the Nutritional Facts. Reduced-fat-anything has added sugar and/or starchs. They are always higher in carbs than their full-fat counterparts. I MUCH prefer the full-fat ones!!

DELICIOUS RECIPE! Will make again! I only used full-fat mayo and parm."

"Cod has no carbs, mayo has no carbs, parmesan cheese has no carbs, Worcestershire sauce has no, where does the 7 grams of carbs per serving come from? ok, thanks for the answer. I use the full fat versions of everything as well. Really good dish. I am making it for the second time."

"I tried this recipe this was very tasty. I just used 2lbs of cod, instead of four4 oz servings. I can't imagine how rich it would have been with such a little amount of fish. It gave it plenty of flavor without covering up the tasty fish....I would make it again.....but with more fish than the recipe calls for..."

"I also added asparagus that had been tossed in EVOO and garlic to the dish and it was simply amazing! Used a little less mayo and tad more italian blend cheese, it was devine!"

"I was very skeptical about this recipe. I had made this recipe before with only Parmesan and mayo. Fear not! This was very good... very filling and very rich. I got full very quickly but really enjoyed it. This is definitely getting added to the rotation to break up the fish I typically make. Low carb friendly!"

"I made this for dinner along with Green Beans with Walnuts. Hubby said it was excellent and wondered where I got the recipe. There is only one answer for that. "Taste of Home" I might cut back on the mayo next time. Lots of sauce left over."
