I didn't have much luck tonight with this recipe. I think it has potential, though. I made it as directed and the ingredients themselves are just fine. I think the issue is with the cooking method. My recommendation for next time would be to cook it for 6 minutes covered, and then to cook it for 2 or 3 minutes more uncovered. I cooked for 8 minutes covered and, although the fish was cooked just right, the topping was quite soggy. Thanks for posting.

You are so right this is a wonderful simple recipe. My friend is a very fussy eater and enjoyed this fish. I like that it isn't smothered in breadcrumbs but just a few for texture. Followed the recipe exactly served with a slice of lime Thanks Grace Lynn great recipe
