  1. Made these Halibut steaks for dinner tonight, cut it back for the two of us. Very good, thanks Dancer^!! I added 1 finely chopped Jalapino Pepper, it added a bit of zing with the garlic. will make this one again and again, thanks for sharing!!
  2. Superb, used lime instead of lemon and added one very finely sliced chilli pepper for a bit more oomph. Was told it was at least as good as a meal had at one of London's top seefood restraunts - praise indeed as a main course there was about $100!
  3. We made this last night, using cod (since that's what we had) instead of halibut. I think I'd mix up the fresh tomato sauce in the morning and let it sit all day, or at least a few hours, to let the flavors marinate and mingle a bit more, and perhaps add some finely chopped onion as well. I served it with brown rice, which soaked up the juice from the sauce quite well.
  4. This was after my fancy! This is so easy to make, but extremely delicious. I have broiled the fish and added a pinch of sugar to the sauce to enhance the sweet flavor of the fresh tomatoes (I couldn't resist). The fish came out of the oven full flavored. The un-cooked sauce is a great idea, because you obtain the flavors of fresh tomatoes and basil. I served it with rice. A great recipe, will keep in my cookbook of my favorite fish recipes.
  5. I made this for dinner the other night for my husband and I. It was outstanding. I added a hot pepper to the tomato mixture. I will definitely make this for company. i served it with saffron rice.
