This recipe is so good, but best of all, it's really super quick and easy. I like a more substantial sauce so that the mixture stays on top of the fish better, so I just added a bit more of each spice ingredient to make it a little thicker. The flavor is fantastic.

This recipe is great. I made it at a friend's house who does not cook. Alas a limited pantry, so I substituted onionowder for the garlic and basil for the oregano and it was very good.

I tried the recipe and it is awesome. I had to change some of the ingredients, since I am cooking at a friends house, I substituted onion powder for the garlic powder & since the oregano available was bad, I,used basil, used paprika. Great

I made a version of this the other night. I didn't quite have all the ingredients called for so I can't comment on the particular flavor combination used in the recipe but the method worked AWESOME. I placed my fish fillets in a pie plate which was just-big-enough then smeared them with some butter [the microwave is broke so I slightly changed the directions here] and sprinkled some spices [including a citrus-basil mix] over the top. I poured a bit of orange juice around the fish then baked it as directed. The fillets came out very moist and with a slight crispyness to the top. This is definitely in the make-again category!
