What a wonderfully easy recipe to make! I really wondered, reading the ingredients, if this would work. But it was super good! That being said, I don't care for frozen fish, so I used freshly caught amberjack fillets, about an inch and a quarter thick. Amberjack is a great-tasting dense white fish, similar to cod in color but a little tighter in texture. The taste was wonderful in this recipe...the only thing I didn't care for was that the flour coating turned a bit "slimey". Maybe turning the broiler on at the end would help with that. But I loved the wonderful lemon/butter juice that I could scoop out of the baking dish over the fish, and the broiler might dry that juice up. Regardless, I absolutely loved the flavor and my fish was just wonderful. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
