I did not marinate the filets instead I simply poured lime juice on them added the veggies and popped them in the oven. I cooked it exactly the same amount of time and at 350 but the filets were a bit dry... Maybe 10-15 minutes less would have worked better? The flavor was nice with the onion tomatoes and peppers. Light and healthy. I would just check it earlier than leaving it for a full hour. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly as written. The baking time was far too long. It left the fish overcooked and dry. It also overcooked the vegetables. Read More

Great recipe. Used on Taliapia instead of grouper. The lime taste was a bit overwhelming for this fish. Overall a great recipe for a great dinner. I had it with pineapple rice casserole and the tart taste from the lime was offset by the sweetness of the pineapple. Thanks Kristal Read More

Fantastic! Light flavorful and healthy! I marinated the fish (tilapia) in the pan overnight and then just threw the vegetables on top salted and baked. Goes perfectly with a side of rice. Read More

I thought this recipe was amazing first of all this is such an easy recipe! Secondly I loved that I didn't have to fry this fish to get a nice flavor. The lime does a good job of getting that fishy smell and taste out of the fish. I would definitely recommend staying with the grouper or any white fish that flakes in big chunks as the grouper did a fantastic job staying together after baking. I did make a few minute adjustments: I did not marinate and the fish came out superb! No real reason I saw the recipe that day and didn't have time to marinate as suggested. I skipped the bell peppers didn't have any on hand. I didn't use red pepper flakes afraid it'd be too spicy for the kids instead I used a regular fish seasoning I've had for forever with a touch of salt. As far as the time 25 minutes was all I needed! The fish was moist flavorful and easy! Love this fish! Read More
