    Altered ingredient amounts. I really like this recipe, however I made it for two only halving the ammount of fish and wine. Looking at the ammount of sauce I had per plateful, I would imagine this would be a little dry served with rice if made with one can of tomatoes between four servings.  -  28 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Absolutely delicious and so quick and easy. I used tilapia fillets, chicken stock and kalamata olives. My husband, who isn't a big fan of fish, loved it.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This is a five star recipe -- with the following changes: add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and italian herbs. Served over brown rice. We all agreed, it was delicious!  -  21 Jul 2008
