    I thought this was pretty good, family not so much. i used a regular onion, but soaked the chopped onion in hot water for about five minutes to reduce the bite - a good trick when no sweet onion is available. It was a bit monochromatic on the plate, definitely needs red tomatoes or very green beans to perk it up.

    Nice quick dinner. Very easy to put together. A bit bland for my taste, but the family loved it.

    Really tasty ! Had frozen mahi mahi fillets for just DH and me, SORT of halved other ingredients. Have just discovered Spanish smoked paprika -- LOVELY addition to flavor ! Did add some pepper. Thanks, LIG -- another treat.

    This was wonderful! I used ling cod and the only change I made was to use local brown onions because we don't have vidalia onions widely available in Aus. As you said makes a really healthy and tasty meal along with a few salad greens and it's also quick to put together so what more could you want.


Hello! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids. I love to read, have fun with family and friends, stay active with: running; soccer; golf; biking; hiking; and gardening. I love to travel. I'm looking forward to more international travel someday. Cooking has become a passion for me. I love to read cookbooks, watch the Food Network, and try new recipes. I have way too many cookbooks! A few of my favorites are: Barefoot Contessa (any - but especially 'Family Style'),Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals 2, Roasting by Barbara Kafka, Beyond Parsley & The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook. I try to carefully choose recipes that I think my family will enjoy, which is why most of my ratings are 3-5 stars. Happy cooking!
