Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game and what a winner. I cut the recipe in half except for the butter and parsley and served it over brown rice and recipe#249878#249878. Definately one to fall back on again and am putting this in my Favorites of 2013 for ease and taste. Thank you for posting.

I forgot to add the parsley! Didn't remember it till I came to review the recipe and saw the lead photo. Well, I guess that I didn't miss it and my fish had excellent flavor. I used Mahi-Mahi and went heavy on the lemon/butter combo with no regret. This is super quick to make, delicious and used things I always have on hand. Whats not to love? :D

This was good but I think it could have used a lot more flavor. Next time I may use more lemon. I used cod fish.
