    I made this for my family this evening. Everyone enjoyed it,including my 4 year old granddaughter. Very easy to make and can be prepared in advance up to the point where is needs to go into the oven. Therefore, it will be good for entertaining.  -  14 Jun 2012


    I made this for dinner for my husband and my parents, and they all absolutely loved it.......every plate was licked clean! I read all the reviews beforehand and it seemed the only complaint some had was that the fish itself was bland. What I did was marinade the steaks in 8 oz. of Italian Dressing for a few hours. That really made a difference, it kept the fish moist and flavorful and complimented the toppings nicely! Also if you are able, try to use every ingredient in its freshest form - it really helps the taste! I used garlic and herb feta instead of plain and that was great. The last thing I did based on some reviews was loosely cover the dish with foil for the first 8 min., then I uncovered and baked another 8 min. I could really tell how the foil helps the feta not brown too quickly and keeps the tomatoes from turning mushy. Besides its spectacular taste, this dish is a beautiful presentation, perfect for company! I will use again and again! P.S. If you can't get fresh halibut, Trader Joe's sells it for $9.99 lb. Its flash frozen, so it's the next best thing to fresh - you really can't taste the difference!  -  06 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an amazing recipe. I used more a bit more vegetables than called for and added crushed red pepper and lemon juice and it was just sumptuous! Will definately serve this to guests. Thanks, Dakota!  -  18 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
