"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 very good. I used pecans instead of walnuts. I all used finely diced red/ yellow peppers instead of the red pepper flakes."

"This recipe was a keeper, EXCEPT for the walnuts. We didn't care for the added taste or texture. I served brown rice as an accompaniment. This recipe is a "keeper.""
