Yes, this was simple, and made with ingredients I had on hand! I used the juice of half a fresh lime, one clove of garlic, and instead of thyme I used a handful of fresh oregano, rosemary and basil. Instead of grilling, I baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, and it did the trick! Very tasty. Thanks for sharing this easy recipe.

It was good for a simple recipe. I doubled everything but the pepper and thyme so it might be because of that... The mango salsa tilapia blew me away and this one just didn't. But good in a pinch.

I used Rockfish and tilapia and substituted the juice of a lemon for the lime because that's what I had ... it was healthy, delicious, and so easy!

We used the marinade as written on one large lake trout fillet (just under a pound). Let marinate in a glass baking dish for approx. 2 hours, then put in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes (leaving marinade on the fish). Very flavorful, easy, and tasty.

I baked it in the oven at 375 and then broiled it briefly. My family liked it, but I would use a little less lime juice next time.

I was looking for something simple and full of flavor and this did the trick. I didn't have fresh thyme but was goes great with lime, fresh cilantro of course. Keep other ingredients mostly same, omitted pepper, used a Chile lime seasoning I had on hand. It is 15 degrees here, so no grilling! Broiled in oven with marinade on for about 10 minutes
