Excellent flavor! Added salt and pepper to season and more thyme than called for, but thought this was a super recipe. It cooks nicely in a cast iron skillet. Thanks for sharing :)

This was so DELICIOUS! I used cod because that was freshest. I love when you can enjoy the flavor of the food, not all the seasonings, or gravies or whatever. This was simple and we loved it so much we're having it again tonight( next day) with grouper and a pinch of cayenne.! Thanks!!
