"We enjoyed this and my man usually does not like fish. However, we did not care for the Greek Green Bean Medley. They were too oily."

"This recipe is absolutely delicious! I made it with Cod the first time and we enjoyed it so much, I made it the next night with Haddock. Both were delicious. We really enjoyed it. I made the Greek Green Bean Medley to go with it which was also delicous!"
