Reviews for Southwest-Style Cod for Two
"this is simple and delicious! it makes what would easily be a $20/person gourmet tasting meal. i added chopped celery and green olives w/pimentos because i didn't have black olives."
"Very good! I had all the ingredients on hand except the black olives. Tastes good without them, next time I will add them as I really like black olives. This is a keeper--quick and easy!"
