This recipe is simple, fast and tastes wonderful! It also fits in perfectly with my Somersize diet. I used cod filets, took Freda2Brown's advise and sprinkled with some dried tarragon, as well as a couple of cloves of minced garlic. I served this with stir fried broccoli with red pepper and mushrooms. This one's going to be a regular for me. Thanks Inez!

This was a very good baked fish. I used halibut and we really enjoyed it a lot. Although the lemon, butter and onions went well together, I think I'll add a sprinkle of dried tarragon next time. We finished the fish off with latke's with sour cream and a small Caesar salad. Good! Thanks for this one MizzNezz.

Made this the other night and followed the directions only using cod. I did use lemon pepper instead of black but followed the recipe instructions which are simple and easy. Served it with Pammesan Pepper Rice Pilaf#84873 and broccoli. Made for a delicious meal. Thank you.
