    Vino Girl's Note:

    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.

      This was very very bitter. I don't know why, but I have a feeling it has to do with the lime. I usually love lime, but this was not good.

      My other half and I really liked this recipe. I did use fresh onions and used plaice. The lime was fine, despite the other person's comment. I recommend this to people that enjoy eating fish as much as we do.
