I hesitate to fix fish because it always tastes bland. This was an easy recipe and had great flavor.

Quick and easy to make although I substituted parsley for oregano for a more rich taste +4 from me.

Cook the fish a little longer than it says if you don't have a good oven! turned out alright but I sadly got food poisoning.
