Cilantro Lime Fish

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).
