    Made this for dinner tonight and I enjoyed the flavors of the lemon, paprika, and dill. It gave just enough flavors to accent the fish. My DH however did not care for it. He is a fish fry or plain fish kind of guy. I tried this to change things up a bit but he said the seasonings were not to his tastes. Go figure. I will make his again but make his the baked fish "fry" while I use these ingredients. I LOVE how simple this dish is to make. Thanks Paula. Made for From the Pantry Challenge. Feb 2012

    This is so easy to do and taste great. I particularly liked the lemon-pepper seasoning. So yummy with fish. Thanks Paula :) Made for the Australian recipe swap for February 2012.

    Made for TOTM Novemeber Diabetes forum and I am glad I did. I cut the recipe in half but followed it completely. I love all the spices so I knew this would be right up our alley. DH loved this because he likes his fish without all the coating that comes with some of them! Served with asparagus and a green salad. Definately a keeper and going into my Favorites of 2011.

    Delicious Paula! Loved the peppery flavour with the lemon.I used cod and did up one large fillet for the two of us. Loved the dill paprika combo, didn't have any lemon pepper so I make my own , mixing lemon zest and fresh ground pepper together, worked out great! I guess my fillet was quite thick, I had to cook it 5 minutes longer than called for; I will be making it again, perhaps next time with tilipia. Thanks for posting!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
