This is really good! I loved the combination of flavors. This is one to add to my regular rotation of recipes. After we tasted this, I mixed up some melted butter, bread crumbs and finely grated Parmesan cheese, sprinkled it over the top and popped it under the broiler briefly. Next time I'll put the crumb mixture on just before baking.
Very nice way to fix fish. Unlike some of the other posters, we enjoyed the mustard and added a touch more horseradish. Thnx for posting, Sharon.
Very Nice! I made this with Basa and creole mustard. The mustard flavor did overpower it but I didn't mind. Made for the Zaar Stars tag game.
