    I use either Hungarian paprika or Old Bay but I like how simple it is.
    I did not care for this recipe. Perhaps I used the wrong kind of paprika, but it simply lacked any flavor whatsoever. Waste of a fish. Better to use a proper fish rub instead. The cooking instructions, for their part, were accurate enough.
    I agree with previous reviews, 450 at 15 minutes for two 8oz pieces was a little drier but definitely not destroyed by any means. Very tasty. I went a little too liberal on using every last bit of juice in the lemon and next time might go lighter on it.
    This sounds so simple, but the result was really fantastic. I agree with GourmetDiva, the heat was too high and it turned out drier than I'd prefer, so I'd use 400 next time. But for quick and easy this can't be beat.
    I bought a 3 lb halibut filet from Costco, used 2 TBSP olive oil for the whole thing and used the lemon and paprika as instructed. I also added a bit of dill weed and threw some parsley sprigs on top. I feel like the oven setting for 450 is a bit too high, so I started out at 400. Cooked for 15 min to perfection. I was told halibut was tough to cook, but it came out very soft, flaky, and yummy. This recipe had simple instructions and was very tasty. I would advise carefully if you set your oven to 450 to maybe check it a little more, but I'd rather start lower and cook longer than burn my thick fillets.
