    julia child says "if fish flakes, it is woefully, wrongfully, and willfully overcooked"

    Excellent. Used Flounder but think it would be better with Sole. Tasty and will make again.

    The butter sauce is excellent and would be good used with any white fish and salmon as well. Very quick and easy and tasty!

    I have never liked fish, but I am trying to like swai, so I may have to try this. Thanks.

    This is one of our family's favorites. Its super quick and tasty! We like to use the fish my husband and son catch(bluegill, crappie and bass) in place of the sole...sooo good!

    I love this recipe. Not only is it delicious, but it is especially attractive. Mine looked like the picture, so I would serve this to company. I like dill so I might increase that next time.
