    Timothy J Higgins Eva's Note:

    Although not normally a fish fan, a friend decided to try this Red Lobster menu item last year after reading its description. As it turns out this dish won a Food Network Challange which is why it was being showcased. After being tempted by the description of white chocolate, toasted macadmia nuts and coconut, and a smooth sweet sauce, it was a must try. Needless to say it was a huge hit and after trying it myself I am a true believer too. If you want a great fish dish that is as captivating and delightness as a great dessert too... this is the recipe for you.

      I was a little worried about mixing shallot and chocolate... but it was very good! I greased the pan with coconut oil instead of spray. I was pleasantly suprised how good this was, not too too sweet or salty and masked the fish taste well without overwhelming it. Will make again. Thank you for posting!
