    Simple and great recipe as is. Want to improve the flavor throughout the fish? Either make a parchment or tinfoil bag to seal everything up in. The juices steam through the fish continuously, keeping it more tender and letting the flavors soak through.  -  26 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very delicious and simple recipe. Loved it. I did rub the olive oil on the fish, added a bit of lemon juice, and then added salt pepper and garlic before adding the fresh herbs and lemon. So good. Very impressed.  -  16 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This turned out great. I made a few minor changes. I took the suggestion of a previous reviewer and brushed the fish with olive oil. I used crushed rosemary on it rather than fresh (I knew the fresh would smell delicious but was afraid it wouldn't add enough flavor) and drizzled on a tiny bit more oil. I then sprinkled 2 tablespoons of white wine on it. It was very light and flavorful!  -  15 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
