Very easy! Very tasty without being too strong in flavor. This recipe will become a regular in this house. Thanks so much for posting!!

Good recipe - change foil to parchment paper so the fish won't stick and to create a better environment for the fish to cook and steam inside the pouch. Add in the pouch some peppers and some thinly sliced garlic on the fish to add contrast to the lemon.
