“I eat a lot of fish and am always looking for healthy, tasty ways to prepare it. This recipe has become a family favorite because of the great flavors—and it’s so easy to prepare (especially if you make the chutney ahead). I serve it with herbed couscous.” —Megan Dicou, Bentonville, Arkansas

"OK, this recipe is great in theory, but HOLY COW, it was so spicy I couldn't eat it. 1 tbs. of chipotle peppers is far too much. I would like to make it again, but I would start with maybe 1 tsp of peppers, or maybe just the sauce out of the can, and you could always taste & add more."
