Made for Spring PAC 2014 and cut the recipe in half and DH and I really enjoyed it. I didn't grill it so I changed the recipe somewhat but it turned out delicious. I put some butter and olive oil in a pan, seasoned the fish with salt, pepper and fresh parsley but dried basil (didn't have fresh) added some garlic and sauteed in a pan. I took the fish out (which didn't take long) and quickly made the sauce. We enjoyed it and will make again. Thank you for posting.

Made this but didn't grill it. Too cold out yet here, They're still predicting SNOW and it's almost May! I brushed the sole with olive oil and pressed the lemon peel, garlic and herbs on, then broiled them. Can't wait to try them on the barby. Thanks for sharing

This was a lot more work than it was worth. Very bland which was surprising with all the different flavors. I really wanted to like it but I won't be making it again.
