    My husband just loved this recipe, Nagako. He doesn't much care for onions, I only used one. I doubled the mushrooms, lemon juice & white wine. I also added 1 extra clove of garlic, a pinch each of parsley and rosemary and then 2 fresh snipped basil leaves at the end. I only thickened the sauce slightly, as we wanted enough to spread over rice. Served this with fresh steamed green beans, as well.  -  28 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good...I used maui onions and it turned out better like onions though!  -  06 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    After cooking the fish with the sauce, you have to make and cook another newer and fresher sauce that you can pour on the fish so that the sauce will not be dark and overdone. The fish will taste better.  -  31 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
