    My daughter and I made this with sole fillets for the family - adults and kids all liked it but as my daughter said, it seems more a 'good start' to a recipe, and could use some work. We all agreed it needs a bit more flavor. Next time we'll try draining the tomatoes so the veggies aren't as watery, and perhaps add red pepper flakes, more capers and a little more pepper. The vegetables would be better sauteed in some of the olive oil before adding to the baking pan - they were undercooked and the fish would have been overcooked if left in the oven long enough for the vegetables to catch up. Precooking the celery and onions etc. would also enhance the flavor. A good, healthy main course that just needs a bit of tweaking to personal tastes.  -  21 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very delicious. I had it with cod fillet instead of halibut fillet. Although it would be better with fresh tomatoes instead of canned I will still give it 5 stars  -  27 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did it with tilapia instead of halibut, and it turned out delicious! My wife and I loved this recipe, definitely a new staple  -  06 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
