My husband and I were not fans. The bacon really overpowers the flavor of the seafood. If you just want to taste bacon, you'll like this.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2010

wow we loved this recipe. We had it with baked halibut and it was so good. We are eating heathy and this felt like a sin. We always eat turkey bacon. We used the center cut bacon for this. There was just as meny calories in the center cut bacon as there is in the turkey bacon. This will become a reg.
