This was great! The flavors were excellent and it wasn't that difficult to prepare. My 8 year old nephew (who can be picky) devoured it, as did our 2 year old. We will be making this again.
This is a wonderful way to fix a healthy meal with fish. The fresh basil gives it a fresh, light flavor. One of my favorites. I've fixed it twice - my family loves it! This is an easy recipes for the person who doesn't know how to fix cod.
