      As a vegan wannabe I'm always looking for innovative animal-protein-free meals, and this one is now at the top of my list! Toasting the breadcrumbs first is an excellent and delicious idea. Instead of parsley I added a healthy dose of cilantro. It used up the last of my Old Bay Seasoning, but was well worth it! Izzy -- this is a real winner, thanks for posting it.

      I was excited to find this reipe. I've been a vegetarian for several years and one thing I do miss is a fish-type meal. This was very good.I tried cutting down on the fat tho. I zapped the veggies in the microwave instead of cooking in oil,and used no oil in the mixing.Next time I'll cut down on the spices. I saved the leftovers to have for lunch tomorrow. I will make this again .And again. Thanks Izzy.
