      If your fish is dry, try brining it first. I read this in Cooking Light magazine this month, and it works! The fish is moist and less....fishy!

      Loved this recipe! Super easy, super fast and so delicious. Perfect for a week night or any night. I used parsley since I had it in the house & I dispensed with using the foil, just used a glass pyrex baking dish. Much better than I thought it would be, definitely a do-over.
