    This wasn't a bad recipe, but the all one texture thing didn't work for me. I like some of the ideas others have put out there for adding texture. I also think if I do make this again, I'd add pepper and maybe some garlic to give it more kick. Of the 6 eating it, 2 -no's, 2 yes, 2 - it was ok - 7/18/08

  • Question:

    When you put the cod and lemon in a pan to cook, are we using heat to cook or the lemon to cook it, the way you do for a ceviche? The recipe doesn't say.

    I'd like to try this with changes to pull it out of the high-carb meal category.

  • My hubby liked it. I didn't at all. All one colour and texture. I added some parsley to give it some colour. Perhaps would be better if I had the tomatoes in it, but even still don't think I'd like it. (the texture thing.) - 4/9/08

  • This is a great recipe. I use the same recipe with salmon, tuna, and boneless/skinned left-over roast chcken from the last night's meal. The chicken provides an interesting taste variation--the lemon is the key! - 12/14/07
