"Like the reviewer before me, I didn't have mahi mahi either and also used tilapia, with equally good results. I cut the recipe way down for just one serving, using one fillet, and smaller portions of the veggies. And, I added some capers. And, I had a small bit of tartar sauce for dipping the fish. I like rice with fish, so that was my side. I like the flavors of the sauted veggies with the fish. Excellent."

"Simple and Delicious! I did not have Mahi Mahi, so I substituted Talapia! I didn't have lemon juice, so I squeezed 1 lemon in it's place - about 2 Tbsp. Other than that, I followed the recipe, exactly! This will be a family favorite. Thanks for sharing."
