    You will never get the complaint about dry yucky fish using this recipe. This recipe keeps all the goodness in the fish where it belongs.

      Missey Wombat this is 5 star all the way. It is simple to prepare, tastes fabulous and the presentation is impressive. When I put the onions, red pepper & cilantro on the fish filet I arranged them in artistic designs so when I served them they looked so beautiful - much oohs & ahs. The cilantro gives that extra flavor & I used a whole HOT red chili pepper finely chopped. Served with a wedge of Lime on the side. I also seved Garlic mashed potatoes, carrot & turnup combo and fresh asparagus baked. Oh yes I used Pickeral filets. I think this recipe would be wonderful with Halibut too. Wonderful meal Thanks Missey Wombat Later date - it went over so well the first time that I had to do it again for this special fussy eater - she ate the whole thing - It is a very tasty, eye appealing recipe thanks again Missey Wombat

      We made this with fresh snapper and it was very easy to make, and the fish was very good. It didn't smell up the house (which is nice)! We thought the fish by itself was a little bland, but when a bite included the 'toppings' was fine. Will maybe try to add some seasonings next time as well (cumin? chili powder?). Not sure if this was truly Caribbean flavor, but it was good!

      Delicious - I used Tilipia but think this will be wonderful with any thin mild fish filet--even my ds who doesn't like fish liked the fish cooked this way! Thanks for sharing this keeper which we enjoyed with tossed salad and baked potatoes.
