    This is a great, simple recipe! While I've done it often with Barrumundi, I have substituted Flounder on occasion. One can even cut down on the butter if one wants. Paired with a green veggie this is serious healthy food.

    Delicious! We love this mildly flavored fish and the lemon basil sauce adds a delicious touch. I was afraid 3T lemon juice would be too much, as did previous reviewers, but used the full amount as they said it was just right. I agreed - it had a light lemon flavor but it wasn't overpowering. I used dried basil but look forward to trying fresh basil during the summer. I did omit the salt and did not miss it. Thanks for sharing!

    If I could give this one a "10" I would. The only thing I did a little different was I added sliced almonds to the pan when I was making the sauce....and I didn't have any fresh basil so I used dried basil. I served this fish with a garden salad and steamed asaparagus. Absolutely marvelous.

    Our family enjoyed this, but for us, it was a little overpowering on the lemon, but stilled enjoyed it immensely and will adjust the lemon next time to suite our taste. Really yummy.
