Cilantro Lime Fish

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

This is a good one for those of us who love lime, since that is the predominant flavor here. Use cod, flounder, or any firm white fish for this. I used Tilapia, and in place of the dried onion I used fresh. I served it with Mexican Tomato Rice and Beans. From Taste of Home's Quick Cooking (September/October 1999).

My son gave it 5 stars and says it's GREAT FOOD! My husband gave it a 3. My daughter said she loved it also. I think the cook time was a bit long. But that could be the size of my fillets. I don't know that I'll ever make it again, but it was all eaten. I took the advice of the other raters and used lime juice only. I would suggest patting the fish dry and letting the only liquid be the lime juice when baking it.
