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.
I've made this a few times & it's wonderful.
This was absolutely delicious.
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.
Super easy to make and even got my 3 year old to eat it! I made too much sauce though so planning on making again tomorrow.
