While on a trip through the Greek islands, my husband and I had a dish that we loved. I tried to duplicate it by combining several different recipes and came up with this. —Sally Burrell, Idaho Falls, Idaho

"Very tasty! The only changes I made were sliced olives instead of chopped, and omitted pine nuts simply because I didn't have them on hand. Easy recipe."

"I'm typically not a huge fan of fish, but this dish was very tasty. Both my husband and my son really enjoyed it and gave it a "thumbs up" which is our family rating system to make again."

"Omitted pine nuts, because many people have severe reactions to them...their throat swells and breathing becomes difficult within minutes, so I never use them. Sunflower seed or slivered almonds are a better choice."

"First saw this recipe in Taste of Home print edition. Made it and loved it! It's so easy and full of flavor. Even my husband went back for seconds! I used toasted almonds instead of pine nuts. Have made it twice already and added it to my favorites. Also a great recipe for those on the South Beach Diet."
