This was really, really tasty. Not to mention easy to make. I didn't have any white fish and neither did my small town grocery store so I used imitation crab instead and it worked out wonderfully! I served it with a warm sourdough baguette.
Hubby and I both loved this dish. I only had tilapia on had, but it worked well with the shrimp and bay scallops. I have prepared an appetizer recipe that cooked shrimp in salsa and butter and that is always a hit at parties. This was an excellent main dish with those same flavors. I had a Roasted Garlic Baguette on hand to sop up the juices and served this with Simply Green! (Salad) for a complete meal. Awesome. I would make this again for company, or just as a quick meal on a weeknight. Excellent.
This was so good! The Scallops were too expensive for my budget but I did have some fresh Crab meat that I threw in just before serving. My husband's a fisherman and I'm always looking for more ways to fix fish. Thanks for a great recipe.
