"I love this recipe. Not only is it delicious, but it is especially attractive. Mine looked like the picture, so I would serve this to company. I like dill so I might increase that next time."

"My only advice is to make sure that you mix up the spices very well. I didn't apparently and some of the fish was much too salty and it was because it wasn't mixed up well. Great recipe, will use again!"
