    This baked fish was wonderful. So full of flavor and yet so easy to make. Will make this fish over and over again!

    Not sure if I did something wrong but I think it lacked flavor. None of my family ate more than one piece and I had cut the filets in half so they were not big pieces to begin with.

    I think this is a terrible way to prepare fish, the fat and calories are a shame .

    I can't believe something this simple tastes this awesome! I used halibut. I found it cooked up rather quickly, so I would adjust the cooking time to 10 minutes. It was done just perfectly at that time. I guess it all depends on the thickness of your fish, but definitely start checking before 12 minutes. This will definitely be added to my regular rotation for fish!

    Made this with cod and it was fantastic. I was a little short of a cup of sour cream so I added about 2 TBS mayo along with the onion soup mix.

    I made this recipe for the first time when I was first dating the man who later became my husband. We've been married for 4 1/2 years and he asks for this often. He always has it on his birthday. It is definitely a fast and delicious way to celebrate. Sometimes I swap the same amount of unflavored yogurt for the sour cream with the same yummy results.

    I had to substitue the onion soup mix with 1 1/4 tbsp of Old Bay seasoning because I was determined to try this recipe one night. I am absolutely not a fish person but I loved it! We used pollock. My kids both ate seconds which is a rarity!

    Very tasty! I used grated Parmesan because it was what I had on hand, and it was OK . . . but the shredded would be better. The pre-teen granddaughter even liked it.

    Both my husband and 9 year old son say this one is a keeper, and my 7 year old had more than one bite. Another plus is that it's very easy and quick to make, and most of the ingredients are things I usually already have.
