Fish fell apart when I tried to turn it. I enjoyed the flavor, but I don't think anyone else did.

I tried this recipe tonight and it was well received by my family. Of course, I didn't follow the directions exactly. I chose to bake it at 425 degrees until it was golden brown. I placed it on non-stick foil that had been lightly coated with cooking spray. There were no leftovers!

We enjoyed this dish. I put the pine nuts, flour, dill weed and seasoning in my food processor and that worked great. The fish had a good flavor and was very moist and tasty.

Excellent recipe! I didn't have pine nuts on hand, so I used walnuts!
