This is a beautifull recipe in it's simplicity!! I have been looking for a recipe to use some cod I had in the freezer and found this and am soo happy I found it. I will try red snapper next time. We loved the orange flavour and the fact that the real taste of the parsley came through. We scaled to half and the two of us ate all of it!! the most delicious cod we have had in a long time. Served it with broccoli and a baked potato. Lovely supper, thanks for sharing a keeper.

Good tasting dish. Easy and quick to make when you have short notice about company coming! I made as directed, and the fish flaked wonderfully without being too dry but couldn't take a photo because it flaked so, that I couldn't plate it prettily! Love the citrus being whole orange slices. Gave it that tang that I love. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Mirj
