Reviews forLemon-Parsley Baked Cod
"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."
"Great recipe; even good leftover the next day in a sandwich!"
"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."
"This was SO tasty and a HUGE surprise to me, given how simple the recipe seemed. Husband asked for it again the next week!"
"I followed the recipe exactly, but the fish was soggy and was not done. This recipe needs a longer cooking time. If I made it again and that's a big IF, I would cook for at least 25 minutes."
