    I just made this dish for myself and my parents and it was such a huge hit! I put the fish on top of fresh spinach (which I sprinkled with some of the parm cheese, squeezed some fresh lemon juice on it and garnished with a lemon wheel)and it looked just as delicious as it tasted! Great summer dish! - 8/2/08

    This was absolutely delicious. My husband and I loved it. I would recommend putting the rack a fairly close to the broiler. I had it a little further away and it took a little longer to cook, otherwise superb. - 7/27/08

    BEWARE! This recipe has more fat and calories than reported! Recipe says "butter" and "mayonnaise" in the ingredients, but the ingredient detail lists margarine and light miracle whip to calculate the nutrition. That increases calories to about 210 per serving, plus more fat I didn't calculate. - 7/16/09

    Sounds tasty! This is similar to a family favorite of ours. We use Italian bread crumbs with cheese & miraclewhip (no butter) and put it on before cooking, cook until the lightly coated spread disappears, the flavor melts into the fish and keeps it moist. - 5/16/09

    Thanks for tonight's dinner! This sounds great, and can be modified for those of us who are vegetarian and/or Weight Watchers. I'll substitute tofu for fish and use low-fat mayo and a natural margarine to lower the fat per serving. The blend of seasonings and ease of prep are great. - 5/14/09
