    This is truly a hit with kids and adults alike. I still get calls for the recipe from the church congregation I cooked for.

      This was really tasty. I've been pushing the family to eat more fish and I've been looking for healthier ways to prepare it. We used fat-free cheese and dried spices and also added a teaspoon of chopped garlic and this was GREAT! It also seemed like it was done cooking before I had even finished cleaning up from prepping the meal. My son is really picky about fish and he asked if I could make this again. I think we have a winner!
