"I was pleasantly surprised! I had the ingrediants on hand so decided to try it. I had a lot of the sauce left over when done eating, so think I'll use it in another dish. We liked it very much"

"The flavor is great and even my toddler ate it! I wish the fish stayed in one fell completely apart. That's the only reason it didn't get five stars!"
