DELICIOUS!!!! I cut the recipe in half but left the amount of sauce the same, seasoned the fish with Mrs. Dash lime fiesta seasoning before flouring but otherwise followed the instructions. DH LOVED this dish. This is definately a keeper into my Favorites of 2012. Thank you for posting. Served with fresh spinach and cheesy orzo #61962 for a wonderful dinner. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

Got this recipe from the Weight Watcher's website original. We absolutely love it! We've made it with tilapia, but we've found we prefer it with hake loin. I usually double the sauce part and quadruple the amount of tomatoes and capers I use because we all love them. I also cook the tomatoes for about 5-10 minutes. I serve it over couscous. On a side note, I had it one night when a vegetarian friend was visiting. She ate it by mixing the sauce with the couscous and topping it with feta cheese. She thought it was amazing too.
