We loved it. I didn't have any tarragon and used oregano in place of it. It was still delicious!

One of the easiest and most delicious recipes! I made it with barley, peas, and walnuts as side dish. Yumm!

Outstanding! My 2 & 4 yr old had two helpings and my husband asked me to make it again tomorrow! Delicious, healthy & moist and I even cut down on the Parmesan.

Loved this recipe!! I'm not a fan of fish but I not only had a second helping but I took leftovers for lunch the next day. I even completely forgot to add the butter (found it still in the microwave after dinner) so it even tasted great AND stayed low fat!
