    PaulaG's Note:

    I enjoy fish and we typically have it at least once a week. This is a nice quick evening meal that is Diabetic friendly. The recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens Spcial Interest Publications Low Calorie and Low-Fat Recipes 1994.

      We try to have fish at least once a week, and this was a great healthy way to serve it. The vegetable combination was so good with the fish, no need for any tartar sauce.

      I made this with a 1-inch thick halibut steak and it cooked up perfectly! I've never cooked fish this was before - so healthy - but I will definately be doing it again. I really loved the flavor of the veggie topping. My hubby is the fish-eater of the household and he gives this 5+ stars for sure - a keeper!

      I made this with haddock since the fish counter was not carrying halibut. It is a flavorful and satisfying low-fat dish. I think I might like it even better with the halibut.
