This was just delicious Kim and SO easy. I prepared this with haddock and followed directions exactly. I covered the fish with the cold water, vinegar and salt and set it over high heat. After 10 minutes it hadn't come to a boil yet, but was quite hot and the fish was adequately cooked. We don't like overcooked fish so I felt it was time to serve and I was right. We all liked it very much. I don't think I'd cook it for the full 10 minutes after the boil. Thanks for posting this delicious, easy, quick's a keeper for sure :)

I didn't really think it tasted like lobster but it was still pretty good. The texture was a bit strange but I think it may have been overcooked. I used fillets that were about 1 1/2 inches thick. I think I will reduce the cooking time to about 8 minutes if I do this again. I served with garlic butter and we did enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.

This didn't taste anything like lobster but I gave it 3 stars because of the ease of making it, almost foolproof. There was nothing wrong with the taste, it just tasted like haddock. Would I make it again? Sure, when I'm in a hurry and need something quick but I think I would add some garlic or seafood seasoning in the butter for a little more taste.
