This is an excellent recipe. However, I spent $18 on two red snapper filets. I'm not complaining about the cost, but the strong herb mix (although delicious) completely covered up the taste of the fish. I think this is the reason for other comments saying that their non-fish loving husbands loved this recipe. That being said, the next time I make this I will be using a much cheaper fish. Great recipe! Thank you.

My husband hates fish. I told him I bought fresh red snapper and he curled his lip. But after tasting this recipe he asked if I still had another filet so we could have it again. That is what you call a successful recipe!!!

My husband is a sworn fish hater, but he and my toddler both love this! I usually use it for salmon instead of snapper.

My hubby made this recipe for dinner the other night and it was positively AWESOME!We will definitely make these filets over and over again!
