Back in the day my fish cooking failures were so extensive Husband Todd practically begged me to abandon the genre. If you're going to stink up the house, he said, the end result ought to be edible. Hence, a moratorium on home cooked fish was declared.
Alas, my desire to try again won out. This time I did the research (previous attempts did not involve Google) and found a recipe for baked tilapia in parchment paper turned out just okay after two tries. So I searched and found one from Joy of Cooking that has produced zero complaints from Todd or the one son who eats fish. Only requests for more.
