My friend in England told me coconut is all the rage there, so I’ve been experimenting with it in main dishes here at home. This is one of my most successful recipes. —Karen Kuebler, Dallas

"This was super easy and super delicious...I am not a big tomato fan but the flavors that the sauce made were so good I was dipping my fork in the bits & pieces that were left and eating them tomatos and all! I think this would be good with any fish since Halibut is a bit pricey!"

"My DH is not a big fan of fish, but he liked this recipe. Will definitely make again. I didn't have halibut, so I used haddock instead. Turned out great."
