    I changed this recipe slightly as I was looking for a low fat fish sauce i.e. This was absolutely delicious and easy to make. I made it with some sauteed mushrooms and 2, 136g packets of LIPTON Butter & Herb Noodles. They really complimented each other and were very quick to make.

    This recipe was delicious! I used some cheap-o run-of-the-mill white fish fillets, and they were scrumptious! I didn't have onion powder, so I substituted 3/4 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt for the onion powder and salt. A real winner in my house, and I will definitely make it again!

    Inez, your recipes never cease to amaze me. This one was simple and easy. We love dill so we thought the flavor of the herbed butter was delicious. I used orange roughy and it worked very well. Turned out tender and well seasoned fillets with very little effort. Bravo!!

    It was wonderful. I did leave out the dill as we are not fond of that but was an excellent fish dish. Glenda in MI

    This was simple and tasted great. This turned out so much better than trying to bake fish in the oven. I'm not even a huge fan of fish, but I will use this again for sure!

    Awesome recipe and so, so easy! I made this a couple of nights ago and the whole family loved it. I used swai, since it was on sale. It worked very well. Next time I will try olive oil instead of butter or maybe add just a touch of butter to the olive oil to make it a bit healthier. Otherwise, perfect! Thanks for this wonderful, keeper recipe. PS- Did this recipe again last night at husbands request, but with a switch....omitted dill and salt and added a heaping teaspoon of low sodium taco seasoning mix, using swai again to make fish tacos. Best fish tacos we have ever made to date!

    This was VERY good. I doubled the butter recipe and subbed in seasoned salt for salt. We loved this. The fillets I used had skin left on them so I sauteed on skin side first until crisp. OMG, these are so good. My family ate everything including the extra butter and seasoning left in the pan?!?! I served this with rice pilaf and sauteed spinach.....such a great meal. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Sooo easy, fast and yummy. Didn't have dill weed but still came out great!! Then I tried using chicken instead of fish and it was just as great!! Thanks!!

    This was really good--very simple to prep & cook. Due to availability of pantry ingredients, I used onion salt & skipped the regular salt. I also used a few crushed garlic cloves instead of garlic powder. Very nice--pretty on a plate and flavorful.

    This recipe was soooo delicious. I used talipia and fresh basil instead of dill and added a little more butter because we love it. The fish was so moist and nicely seasoned. Definitely the best fish recipe I have ever tried. This is a keeper.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
