    I made this recipe exactly as written, except I used a little more tomato than what it called for (because I needed to use some up). No bitterness from the lemon. I am sure this recipe is going to be one I'll go to often. I loved everything about it! I put it together when I got home from work and I served it over white rice that I had made previously (I steamed it back to soft and fluffiness). Just perfect!!

    This is very good. The fish was cooked perfect and I loved the capers and tomatoes. I agree that next time I don't think I'll fry the lemons but maybe sprinkle some lemon juice over the fish once it's plated. I served this with buttered green beans. Thanks.

    This was ok. I'm not a real big fan of sea-beasties, but thought I'd give this a shot. I agree with one of the reviews, I prefer fish to be breaded and fried crispy. Thanks for posting. My husband really liked it.

    Followed the directions exactly, but it turned out to be way too salty. I think I prefer baked crusty fish to this dish with watery sauce. Sorry.
