    This is absolutely outstanding - the most flavorful fish recipe I have ever had.. I couldn't believe how tasty it was, given so few ingredients - but they work, and they work well together! I will be making this often.. thanks..

    This was very good, Loved the lemon flavor, I added parmesan, and some old bay seasoning, All I had was some swiss and mozzarella cheese that i mixed together, Turned out sooo good. Very flavorful. Thank you for the Recipe, I will make this again.

    It turned out very good. I used a thick grouper fillet, which is also a very white mild fish. I didn't change any ingredients, but I did add the lemon juice with the cream and mustard rather than squeezing the lemon on with the salt and pepper. I just felt it blended in better. I used a mild swiss cheese fresh grated.<br/><br/>Depending on the thickness of the fish will adjust your cooking time. I cooked mine for 15 and then flipped on the broiler for 2 minutes is all, just to lightly brown.<br/><br/>For a garnish I served it with a lemon slice and fresh chopped parsley<br/>Very nice and very easy, thx
    Woaooooooooooooooooo it amazing....this is my favorite fish........kisses for u

    Our FAVORITE fish recipe to date! It's just one of those recipes that tastes so much better than you would imagine from the simple ingredients. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I'm glad we found it, as we were searching Icelandic recipes and it didn't come up- luckily for us we tried Iceland as a keyword, too.
