Very flavorful fillets. Something I usually don't often have, but we really enjoyed these. Made for a nice Sunday dinner. The juices from these were a winner too. Made for 1-2-3 hits.

This was very good. I didn't bake the fish as long, but left it in the sauce a bit longer to absorb the flavors. I finished it off with some sea salt and had a wonderful dinner! Thanks for sharing!
