This is one of the best tasting fish recipes I've ever made.. Like someone else mentioned, after 5 minutes, the whole house was smelling just AWESOME - it woke up my son from a nap and he said "smells amazing!".. Don't change a THING! But having said that, I talked with Evelyn offline and she did clarify that the 'canned crushed tomatoes' marketed in the USA are not the same as in Greece, so I bought a 28oz can of whole tomatoes, drained them, and crushed them lightly by hand.. worked great. Thanks Evelyn!
Very, very good! Even my 11 year old son enjoyed it. Prep time was closer to 45 minutes. Will be making this one again!
Ok - I did it. I made it with chicken breasts. Taste was very good.
I had problems with this recipe, starting with the canned crushed tomatoes. I don't usually buy this product so I'm unfamiliar with it. The can was labeled crushed tomatoes but was nothing but puree, so I had no way to drain it. The grouper was well cooked before the peppers were even slightly soft. The one good thing I can say is the sauce was delicious sopped up with bread.
I had high hopes for this dish, but for all its great ingredients and all the time and effort involved, it was surprisingly bland. I more than doubled the garlic and added extra onion, but the taste still lacked complexity and depth. I thought the feta would round out the flavors, but it was basically lost in the mix. Also, the baking time was way off; the fish was done in under half the time listed. (Because I suspected the baking time was too long as indicated, I sauteed the vegetables before baking, which not only assured they would be done along with the fish, but also fused the flavors better). It wasn't bad, but just wasn't anything memorable. Sorry, Evelyn.
Evelyn, this was a great recipe. It was so simple to make (I hand chopped all the veg and pitted the olives-it took me 18 minutes;-)) and the result outstanding. I took your advice and provided lots of warm crusty bread to mop up the juices, we also had my cumin potatoes, and plenty of good white wine. I used rock ling fillets for the dish.
Very good dish! The seasoning was superb, I just served with a simple greek salad and brown rice. My prep time was more like 45 minutes rather than the 15 stated in the recipe (of course, I hand chopped all veggies and pitted the olives), but it was worth it. I used fresh tomatoes rather than canned.
Delicious! Exactly the recipe I was looking for.
tweeked a couple things but overall it was excellent!
Nice tasting dish. My DH just loved it. It was so quick and easy to fix. Thanks for posting.
