    I've made this twice and this halibut recipe was delicious but my thermometer never read 165 degrees. I put it back in the oven until approx. 15 min. but the thermometer never reached 165. Tried this with two different thermometers. Anyone else have this issue? (I read that FDA says 145 degrees is good for fish; other sites say 125 degrees.) Any opinions?

    Made the recipe exactly as written. This is the best and most easy fish recipe I've ever made. Absolutely delicious!

    I used bacon grease and limes because I was out of olive oil and lemons, and it turned out great. Everyone loved it and there was even slurping off of the plate.

    Yum! Everyone had fish for dinner tonight, even those that usually decline. Skipped putting the fish in the fridge. Came out great, will make it again.

    I used haddock and followed the recipe as written other then I used I can't believe it's not butter and dill for the herb. This was really good and full of flavor.
