I used tilapia fillets and fresh herbs as instructed. I added Worcestershire sauce and white cooking wine once I had the pan ready to be placed in the oven. I think it enhanced the herbs flavors adding an extra zest. I usually salt/pepper the fish fillets and let them stand in lemon or lime juice what ever I have handy 10- 15 minutes before cooking any fish. I find that this procedure removes some of the fishy smell of the fish. This is overall a healthy, easy tasteful recipe. I will make it again but I will definitely increase the amount specified for herbs adding the wine and Worcestershire sauce while the sauce is simmering. The dish looked lovely with thin slices of lemons of top. I was sorry I forgot to take a picture! I will next time.
