We eat a lot of seafood and I 'm always searching for new recipes. I used Cod, and it was so good. I was out of fresh dill, so I used some McCormick "It's A Dilly, seasoning. I'd serve this to company. Thanks!

I made this with cod filets and the only thing I did differently was add abit of sauteed onion in the butter which I drizzled on in the last few minutes. The flavor is outstanding, I served this with PanNan's Tartar sauce Tartar Sauce for my Dad who cannot eat fish without it. I thought it was perfection without it, but still tasted it with and it was also wonderful! With Lent coming this will be repeated frequently in our house, it can be made quickly for the weeknight dinners, throw in a baked potato and your set! Thanks PanNan...a wonderful recipe as always!

Easy-peasy and so good, I also used dried dill but it was very flavoursome. My husband especially appreciated this easy dinner, he loves fish! Thank you PanNan!! Made for International Agents of QUEST
