  4. Broil for 8 minutes. Turn fish over and broil an additional 5 minutes.

Hearty fresh fish and meat. This would probably be a great hearty meal on a fishing trip or woodsy vacation. (I think it would even work over an open fire.) I probably wouldn't generally choose this preparation at home, since the bacon and the beef broth is a bit heavy-handed for fish.

Very good recipe. I used tilapia instead, but made as written. Made for Newest Zaar and Bargain Basement.
