    Altered ingredient amounts. This was a great recipe; very quick and easy as well to prepare. I roasted my fillets in the oven instead of barbecuing. Also upped the rosemary and thyme a bit (also used dried instead of fresh). I am making this again next week for a merlot wine tasting party we are hosting.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Something else. Really great recipe! I was trying to find a way to add garlic to the pork and i never thought to cut it horizontally! But yes, dont cook for and hour... it took me about a half an hour on medium heat  -  15 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was amazing!! I did cut back the olive oil a little, I used dried thyme because that's all I had at the time. I did use fresh rosemary (I grow it in my garden), I used double the garlic and I added 4 tbsp of white wine to the mix. I let it marinate a couple of hours before barbecuing over coals and wood. My God, really good!!!!.  -  15 Sep 2008
