    I really enjoyed this easy, quick and delicious recipe. One of those uncomplicated dinners perfect for busy weekdays. I think the lemon added an extra zing. So good especially served with a quinoa salad!

    I forgot to get the fish marinating in time for dinner so I was only able to marinate it for about 15 mins. It was all right, but not much flavor. I will make it again and marinate it longer to see if it has a better flavor. I also cooked it in a pan for about 2 mins per side.

    I really likes this recipe, although the husband thought it had too much lemon juice.

    A healthy and convenient go-to meal with a fresh balance of flavor from the lemon and herbs.
