    Pretty good. Our family likes just about anything with garlic and lemon so this was an easy winner. Nice and quick, too.

    First time it went very well, second time the lemon was too strong.

    Excellent and super easy. Will definitely make again. Very yummy sauce. I like that it is one dish in oven and super fast. I found you had to cook it longer then it said in my oven - but I had a good amount of fish so it was layered a little in the pan.

    Simply AMAZING. We paired this with "The Best Pan Fried Breakfast Potatoes". And all I can say is amazing. They paired perfectly together. When you make it, make sure you don't get rid of the sauce! Pour it on your plate and dip the potatoes in it. The sauce is amazing and so is this dish! Will make many more times, thank you!!

    This recipe was quick and easy and came out very flavorful. My 8 year old son is a very picky eater and he ate a whole filet and was asking for more.
