I made this for supper last night and was pleasantly surprised. I usually prefer my fish grilled or fried so I wasn't expecting much from steamed fish but it had a light lemon flavor and perfect texture. Clean up was virtually non-existent, a plus for those nights I have to work. I will make this again.
