Top Review by PalatablePastime

I'm sorry that we weren't really fond if this. The potatoes and onions were both crunchy even though they were sliced very thin. I think they should be baked first and the fish just added at the end without lowering the heat. We had to put this under the broiler to get it to brown at all. The flavor is pretty bland and was improved by the addition of lemon but I think this recipe has potential to be a really superb recipe if the cook times/cook temps are adjusted and something acidic is added besides just lemon to perk the flavor. Again, sorry I couldn't rate this higher. Reviewed for "Please Review My Recipe" tag game.
