Great grilled fish! Just goes to show one cannot go far wrong with a Bon Appetite recipe, yes we enjoyed. I went with the lemon juice and am sure an added splash of wine would be good too. Great taste and looks wonderfully appealing on the platter. Didn't have Cognac on hand so will do the flaming next time around - and there will be plenty of next times. It was so good that it would be hard to improve upon - but will do that flaming - know flaming impresses! Thank you Mary.
