Made with 1.25 lbs fish, based on reviews: doubled seasoning using Old Bay instead of paprika, halved butter (LOVE butter and still only used half). Bake 350 for 10, then broil for 2.5 each side. The eaters will melt- so nummy. Primo recipe- takes 20 min, tops. Read More

This was just "okay" for us. It didn't really have alot of flavor and there was WAY too much butter! I baked it at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and then broiled it for 7 minutes (my fillets were very thick). I may try this again sometime but I would definitely use less butter and more (or different?) seasonings next time. Oh yeah and I'm STILL trying to clean the mess out of my oven from all the splattered butter... LOL! Read More

Superb fish dish. Texture and flavor is out of this world. Half as much butter is just fine as there was lots left over. Use this base recipe for all fresh, flaky fish. I may try a bit of sweet white wine for bull nose dolfin. Be sure to turn when broiling as the browning gives a nice texture and crunch. Read More

The recipe title says it all! This was indeed super! The only changes I made were to substitute garlic powder for the garlic salt and I added a bit of dill and a bit of salt-free lemon pepper to the spice mix. I added some fresh squeezed lime juice (from a quarter of a leftover lime) in with the lemon juice/butter. I baked the grouper for 10 minutes @350 then broiled for about 5 minutes to finish it off nicely. My fillets were thick. I loved the mayo/paprika topping too and added some fresh chopped parsley over the fish. My room mate loved this dish too. Thank you Shirley this one is a keeper! Read More

As someone else mentioned this recipe is very buttery. Next time I will use about 1/8 of the listed amount. Otherwise I think it would have had a really good flavor. Read More

I have been trying to build my repertoire of fish recipes, so after reading the first 10 reviews on this one, I decided to try it. Like most reviewers, I halved the butter (I only had 3 grouper filets). I substituted Old Bay for Paprika in the seasoning blend. The directions didn't mention broiling (although you prepared it in a broiler pan), so after baking for 10 minutes, I spread with mayo & sprinkled with paprika, then broiled for 2-3 minutes to lightly "crisp." a VERY GOOD recipe! (Glad I found it!) Thanks, Shirley! Read More
