      I don't know whether my harissa is extremely weak or not, but the 1/2 teaspoon didn't seem to flavor anything (of course, the sensitivity of the person eating also needs to be considered - I prefer to eat hot, spicy food). I added more harissa, to get about a tablespoon, total. That was all I had, but I was still not so happy with it. And then, instead of lemon juice and parsley, I decided that chopped coriander was what this recipe needed. It was okay. As you can see, I changed the recipe all around, so do not feel comfortable assigning stars. I do think I'll seek out recipes with more promise of fire. Thank you for the experience.

      Extremely delicious, and so easy to make! I used cod fillets and canned organic tomato sauce with some finely chopped vegetables in it, and it was so absolutely wonderful. Will definitely make this again, thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for A Diabetic Summer Trip / Diabetes Forum June 2013

      Awesome!!! Easy to make. I used halibut the first time and I just bought some blue marlin to try for next time.
