"We love this versatile fish. It pairs well with so many sides and even my picky teens like it. Next time I make it, I will omit or decrease the salt, since my husband found it a bit too salty."

"I found this recipe a little over a year ago and I have used it so many times. It is one of our absolute favorite quick dinner recipes! For such a bland fish, this recipe really makes it something incredible. We like to add a little fresh Parmesan cheese to the top about 5 minutes before its done. Such a good addition!"

"I made this for dinner tonight . . .it was delicious. I did not use the butter, but squeezed a 1/2 lemon over the fish and a little water for moisture. Seasonings were perfect! I served this on a bed of steamed spinach."
