Delicious! This was a very tasty and healthy dish. Even my husband loved it and he is a very picky seafood eater! One of the most simple recipes I've tried from this site. Easy to prepare & yummy to eat... what more could you ask for?
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!!
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.
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.
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!
I really enjoyed this recipe..I used rock fish the first time...Today i bought the grouper and i think we will be using this recipe alot...Nice and light...Full of flavor..Also very easy to do..
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.
A little bland, as printed and not quite citrus-y enough.
