"Don't lose this recipe!" declared DH. We followed this recipe for Rockfish (Striped Bass), and it was a perfect match! It was too hot to shop, so I substituted 1 tablespoon of dehydrated onion, and shortened the saute to 1:30, and used 1 tablespoon of dry nonfat skim milk with 1 tablespoon water; all worked out deliciously! These were very spicy, but within our tolerance. Best reason to keep Rotel on hand at all times! Made for I Recommend tag.
