"easy, but not good. The lime would be better if the juice was squeezed on after cooking - the rind gave the fish a bitter taste. Even though there was a lot of seasoning, the fish had no flavor and we all had to add a lot of salt to make it edible."

"easy to do and tastes great. I used chopped onions instead of dried minced onions and butter instead of olive oil"
