    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You can use about 1 tablespoon fresh dill in place of the dried if desired. I add in about 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb mixture but that is optional. This is also good with other meaty fish fillets too! Double the recipe for more than 4 fillets.

      My review didn't post so here I go again....made this for Zaar Cookbook Tag and I cut the recipe in half and like Parsley added a little sugar to the lemon mixture and used fresh dill and some fresh Parmesan cheese as you recommended. Delicious! Thank you again for a wonderful dish!
