Excellent! I used cod & didn't roll it. The flavor from the other ingredients make this a "keeper".

This was quite tasty served with a rice pilaf & broccoli! My choice of fish was sole fillets which didn't want to stay in turbans rolls - so I used tooth picks to secure. I used very little salt but I was quite liberal with lemon pepper. Thanx sugarpea!
