    I halved everything because I was only making two fillets just for myself, and it was wonderful! I cooked it for a little less time, but my fillets were probably a little thinner, so that variation is bound to happen. Fantastic recipe though, quick and easy, will definitely be making again!  -  27 Aug 2015
