    This review is based on how I made it, not the recipe as written. I used 1 tsp dried cilantro instead of coriander seed and upped the lemon juice to 2 Tbsp. I mixed all the seasonings into the oil prior to applying to slices. After baking, topped with diced fresh tomatoes that were mixed with a little basil and salt. Easy and yummy.  -  23 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    5 stars. So simple and very very tasty. Really easy and still good.  -  23 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did not have coriander seed so used a different herb mix, but even so this was quite good. There were leftovers, and it got better every time I ate it! The lemon seemed to blend with the spice over time to deliver a really tasty flavor.  -  19 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
