I have had this recipe for about 10 years or so and just pulled it out again. It was memorable enough to make again!

A delicious way to serve fish! I had halibut on hand, so used that. I allowed the fish to marinate in the sauce for one hour prior to baking in the oven at 400F for 20 minutes. I also used a 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes. The mustard and lemon really brightened up the flavor of this dish. Thank you for sharing!
