My whole family (including kids!) really liked this. I was very doubtful as it went together though. I thought I had sherry but didn't, and used vermouth instead. It worked really well as a substitute. Will try it with sherry next time though. I used sliced baby bellas rather than dicing a large portabella. Other than that, I followed the recipe eactly. I used the full amount of tarragon, and it really only added a mild flavor. Thank you!
To be perfectly honest, this doesn't sound that interesting on paper. However, after reading the other positive reviews here, I took the plunge and made this dish. The tilapia definitely has a very mild flavor, which leads to a somewhat bland flavor, but the peppers more than make up for it. I didn't have any tarragon or sherry on hand (expensive ingredients for a college student), so I made it with just the vegetables and tilapia. Highly recommended.
