"Ohhh yes I would make this again!!!!"
"Everyone at my house loved it! It was fast to make and I liked that it took only 1 pan."
"This recipe has two things we are trying to eat more of fish and spinach. Great combination and very easy to prepare. I don't think it needed the walnuts...they didn't add anything to the dish."
"This was a good, solid recipe. Loved the spinach with it."
"This was very good. I used pecans instead of walnuts. I all used finely diced red/ yellow peppers instead of the red pepper flakes."
