Recipe Comments and Reviews


I can only comment on the fish preparation since I did not make the lemon dill sauce due to limited time. Used haddock and seasoned with lemon pepper seasoning instead of just salt and pepper. The fish came out divine! Tender, moist with a crispy coating. I am definitely making again and want to make the sauce since it sounds delicious.
