5 stars all the way...even with a cooking screw up! First off...I saw this recipe and was drooling and ran to my fish man in search of flounder. All out! Nothing even close so I ended up using tilapia instead. I used italian seasoned panko breadcrumbs rather than regular breadcrumbs. The sauteed fish just in the panko was delicious as it was! The problem I encountered was when I used reduced fat butter. DID NOT WORK! My "sauce" turned into a clumpy paste. I tasted a bit of it and it was wonderful just certainly could not be "poured" over the fish as the recipe instructs. No matter. SUPER wonderful taste here. Will DEFINITELY make again...and probably with tilapia again! Went beautifully!

Lovely recipe! I had just picked a juicy ripe Meyer lemon off my tree and this was the perfect showcase for its flavor. I, like another reviewer, used panko crumbs. The sauce: mmmmm!!! I served this with roasted balsamic Brussels sprouts and whole-wheat angel-hair pasta, which soaked up the sauce nicely.
