I followed this recipie to a T and to be honest we found it to be a bit bland. All we could taste was a hint of lime. I went over the recipe again to make sure I didnt miss anything but..........it was all in there. The next time I made Grouper was last week. I had my Mom over for lunch. I baked it in lemon juice Cant believe its not butter lite and some fish seasoning. Baked it for 25 min and when it was done I placed a home made fruit salad on top warmed up!! IT was a combo of black plums oranges apples strawberries and peaches. Served with french green beans with garlic butter and sliced almonds. Wonderful!! Read More

I really enjoyed the flavor of this dish; the flavors didn't overpower the fish. It did however take quite a bit longer to cook than this recipe stated. Next time I try this recipe I'm going to cook it covered even though the recipe doesn't call for it. Read More

This was absolutely delicious and I would make it again. I think the instructions need to be slightly tweaked tho b/c if you add the seasonings first and then add the butter the butter ends up removing the seasoning so I suggest using the butter first on the fillets THEN using the seasoning. You do NOT need to use butter for the baking dish that only adds more empty calories. Good recipe thanks for sharing! Read More

Eh only a so-so recipe. I thought the flavors would be great but surprisingly they didn't permeate the fish like I thought. But my husband said the leftovers were WAY to citrus-y. We'll probably make again with more lemon pepper and cook in foil packets on the grill. Read More

Easy to prepare but the oven temp was too low to cook the fish in the time recommended. Or else my filets wild caught and 2" thick were larger than the recipe. After 1/2 hour I cranked the heat up to 350 for another 10 minutes. Read More

This was a great dish! The Citrus is just the right amount of flavor. The only thing I would change is the amount of butter. Read More
