MY REVIEW

"This recipe turned out great! My husband and 14 month old gobbled it down, and neither one of them is a real fish eater. The fish was very tender and moist. The flavors of the asparagus and the fish worked well together. Will definitely be making again!"

"Made it using cod and turned out beautifully. Would definitely make again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2011

"I prepared the recipe as directed. The haddock was a bit bland and I didn't care for the asparagus cooked that way. Possibly I would try it again but cook the asparagus separately in the oven just roasted with oil and salt and pepper."
