This was really good, and super fast cooked in the microwave. I followed the original recipe in the magazine which called for fresh basil instead of dried. I served this with scalloped potatoes and green beans.

Simple, tasty and healthy and with common ingredients usually on hand.

Recipe probably isn't all that awful. Cod is just not a tasty fish. Will never do this one again.

Yes, I will make this again. I thought it very tasty in-spite of the fact I did not have any seafood seasoning on hand for the recipe.

It was bland. Will look for a more flavorful option.

This was delicious. I omitted the oil and salt to cut fat and sodium content and threw a sliced, precooked red potato and 1 cup of sugar snap peas in the same dish to cook for the last 4 minute for a complete meal.

I baked as well. I also used Orange Roughy and the whole can of tomatoes.

I used sweet vidalia onions and green onions and baked it as well. This was delicious and there were no leftovers!

I'm not a big fish eater, but I enjoyed this dish. Definitely not too fishy tasting and I didn't need any tartar sauce to help it go down. Just the right amount of flavor. Very easy to make and I took Jill Balkema's advise and baked it. Thank you Nancy Daugherty for sharing your recipe with us; it was great. My husband and 16-year-old son also really liked it. :)
