I was looking for a way to prepare fish that didn't involve breading and deep frying, and this recipe looked just about perfect. Since I was limited to the ingredients I had on hand, I used shallots instead of onion and diced up a couple of fresh tomatoes. I also did a full recipe of sauce even though I only had one pound of fish (DH likes lots of sauce). The dish was very flavorful and well balanced... cream, booze and butter really DO go together so well! Thanks for posting!

Very flavorful, pretty, and easy! I made the full sauce recipe, but with one pound of Tilapia. I roasted the Tilapia covered, in my oven at 425F for 8 minutes, while I prepared the sauce on the stove top. My seasoning salt contained red pepper flakes, but I added a bit more!

We really enjoyed this for dinner tonight, plus it's a quick dinner - a real bonus on busy weeknights. The recipe has so many good things going for it - low-fat fish, lycopene from the tomatoes, and yummy flavors. I used basa, about 3/4 lb, but all of the sauce ingredients, and we scarfed it all up. I did use less cream - mainly because I was not patient enough to reduce it much - and whirred the sauce a bit with my immersion blender, as Mr Grumpy is not always kind towards chunky sauces. Left some chunks, though. Served with rotini and Brussels sprouts, and Mr Grumpy ate every drop.

Wonderful fish recipe! I used virgin coconut oil for frying and followed the recipe to the letter - making up my own seasoning salt according to your description. We absolutely loved this dish. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made in honor of Gideon.
