The sauce came out very good but my husband didn't like the fish at all.

Fantastic combination of flavors that you would not anticipate turning out the way they did. I halved the butter/oil cause of the diet, but it turned out exquisitely. Only thing I wanted was to double the sauce, put it on pasta, it was THAT GOOD. Thanks!!

This was delightful. I did not have any olives, and for the chicken broth I substituted the water that the dried tomatoes had soaked in (mine are homemade and as dry as paper). I eyeballed the quantities, as I made only two fillets, and they evaporated off the plates. Quick enough for everyday, elegant enough for company. (I used the full amount of liquid, and I think 1/4 c. may be insufficient for 4 fillets).
