My husband and I thought this was pretty tasty. We enjoyed the flavor of the topping, but for some reason I thought it would be almost a tad crispy. I had to take it out of the oven early, and lower it from the broiler because parts of the fish were getting done a lot quicker than other parts, and I didn't want it to over-cook. That was probably just because it wasn't a uniform thickness. For seafood seasoning I used Old Bay. I think it could have used a tad more of that. The lemon was a little forward, but it wasn't overwhelming. I think with a little extra Old Bay, it'll balance out. Decent recipe, I'd make this again.

I can not believe the one single 2 star review came because someone felt this recipe was too time consuming. Really? 5 minutes of prep and 10 minutes under the broiler requires too much effort from you? Maybe you should stick to microwave TV dinners. I look forward to trying this healthy recipe myself! Thank you!

Pretty good--and very fast! Great for a weeknight dinner. FYI--I do not own a broiler pan, so I had to just use a cookie sheet. Turned out just like the picture and tasted great.

While it was simple to put together, I thought it was a bit bland. I had used frozen filets instead of fresh, and they were a bit thin. Next time, I won't use a traditional broiler pan so the seasoning does not run off. Worth another try!
