      No one liked this except me. I didn't get any specifics about why, though. My husband thought I should have added some spices with the onions, and said the finished dish was bland. I did quadruple the recipe. I had a hard time with the onions caramelizing - they took forever and were too oily and mushy. Maybe rather than a straight conversion I should have reduced the oil and water a bit. I did serve this warm over brown rice. I realize that it is not meant to be served warm and I apologize if this affected my results.

      Delicious! Delicious! This recipe is going in my Zaar *6* Stars cookbook and into my everyday rotation! Super simple to make with very satisfying results. It also fits the bill for comfort food, yet it is nothing like I had ever eaten before. Thanks so much for sharing!! I used the ingredients exactly as listed & didn't feel anything was missing in the final product -- As I was making it I was wondering if I should add cayenne or more garlic etc -- but no! Don't touch the balanced ingredient list :) I recommend making this as is with no reservations. I had no way to steam the fish in step 5, so I baked it & it worked just fine. Yummy at room temp and chilled. Served with my Tomato Cucumber Scallion salad {ooh, which I need to put up on zaar for everyone!} & it made a perfect dinner!!
