I was a bit disappointed in this recipe after reading all of the wonderful reviews. I found that the fish was just ok, nothing special. I felt it was bland, like it was missing some seasoning. I have other baked cod recipes that I prefer.

This tastes marvelous. My son thought it was too lemony, but I thought it was just perfect. I didn't have any green onions on hand, so I used chopped fresh chives instead. That worked fine. This is fancy enough to serve dinner guests, and easy enough for a weeknight meal.

This was the absolute best & easiest fish recipe I've ever made. I used Halibut & it was fantastic, did exactlywhat the recipe said. This is most certainly a keeper!

I love Cod, this is a great and easy recipe. I added little dill as I like that flavor w/lemon. A definite keeper.

Can't get much easier for a delicious fish dish. Made exactly as stated using fresh lemon and parsley.. I would imagine this would be good on any white fish.

This was absolutely awesome! I used 2 lbs. of frozen cod, defrosted, and dried parsley instead of fresh, so I increased the rest ingrediants by around 1/4 more. Everything else I had on-hand, including the red potatoes in the photograph. Simple and wonderful.

If I bake fish, it is always this way. Excellent results. Time depends on thickness of the fillet. I have found that 10 minutes per inch at 400 is perfect. If thinner or thicker, adjust accordingly.

We live in Tampa and we eat a lot of fish...so this recipe was at the top of my list to try, and the results were excellent. No cod was available so I used Pollock instead. Definitely a keeper.
