This is the first fish recipe that got two thumbs up from my picky “meat-only” eaters. The tangy lemon gives the cod some oomph. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

"I'm not too much of a cod fan. This recipe didn't win me over."

"I, too, found the fish soggy after pouring on the additional lemon/butter. Also felt that there was too much butter than was necessary, but found the lemon flavor spot on. All and all, would prefer other recipes to this one."

"I really liked this recipe, other than the fact that it was a bit too lemony for me. I will try this again without the lemon peel. I like another reviewer's suggestion of using panko too!"

"I really enjoyed it, but my husband did not. I think the lemon flavor was too strong. I think I would try again, and not pour the extra lemon butter over the top."

"I made this without flour. I mixed the ingredients into the butter and brushed it on and then poured the rest of the mixture into the pan. It came out great. It was a tad too buttery for me, but that's just me."

"Amazing! I used panko instead of flour and I ended up using 1/2 C. I followed everything else in the recipe. It was delicious. Served with boiled butter and parsley potatoes and spinach. Will be adding this recipe to my list of meals I make regularly."

"I liked this recipe. quick and easy. But the fish was soggy on the bottom. I will make it again, but will not pour all the extra butter/lemon sauce on top. Hopefully that will eliminate the soggy bottom."
