    This recipe has just too much spice for our taste. We could not even taste the fish (yellow tail snapper) We do a lot of fishing and if it is a really mild fish, why would you cover up the taste. Sorry, but this is not keeper for us.

    Mine didn't come out as pretty as the picture, but they were certainly tasty! I used margarine instead of butter, and italian seasoning because I didn't have any basil or oregano. I can't wait till my boys go fishing again!
