The main industry here on Kodiak Island is fishing, so I'm always on the lookout for new seafood recipes. This is my favorite way to fix halibut since it's quick and tasty. I often get recipe requests when I serve this to guests.

I just love this recipe! I make it quite a bit. It's very quick and easy and tastes so good. I use tilapia.

T have made this recipe quite a few times over the years and it is always a big hit. It's the recipe my husband always requests for special dinners. I have only used Halibut.

We liked this, but the sauce had a little too much onion flavor. I might make this again, but I would try a different fish. I used salmon.
