Definitely 5 stars for simplicity! Like the flavor of the marinade mixture, did use some of it from the bottom of the pan to pour over the fish. Thanks for the recipe!
My picky family loved it. I used tilapia instead of cod but stuck to the recipe otherwise. Yummy. Yummy. We will have this often.
Mmm, loved this! Served it over rice and with salad as a side. So good! My hubby absolutely loved it, too.
I loved this recipe and will use it again. We have some fresh bass and I used fresh dill, no salt, Mrs. Dash instead. Terrific!
reinertoo, thank you so much for the comment. I'm so glad you liked the recipe!
