    Very good and pretty easy to make. I liked the addition of the lime into what is basically pesto. I used two cloves of garlic and feel that three would be overkill, and this is coming from a garlic lover. I used mahi fillets and cooked them on a medium heat grill for 10 minutes, covered, skin side down. Turned out great. I'd definitely make this again.

    Awesome recipe! Made exactly as directed except we used walleye because grouper wasn't available. Served with CL Grilled Eggplant Stack and Zucchini, Walnut and Blue Cheese Flatbreads. Would work well with any grilled or broiled fish.

    This was excellent! One recommendation would be to measure your basil leaves packed into the cup. If not, I think that the other ingredients would over power the flavor of the basil. If you like garlic, but not necessarily raw, you could try cooking it in the olive oil over LOW heat until softened slightly, but not browned, allow it to cool and then incorporate with the other pistou ingredients in the mini food processor. (Disclaimer: I use this method when making garlic bread with fresh minced garlic to tone down the "raw" garlic taste although I have not tested it yet for this particular recipe.) This was an excellent topping to grouper that I can promise I will make again and again. I served it with grilled zucchini and yellow squash, & a cucumber salad.

    This was a wonderful recipe! I usually use recipes that call for baking the grouper in the oven, and it typically comes out too chewy. This was the first time I grilled the grouper, and it came out tender and juicy. The pistol was perfect! I served this with sautéed okra and my husband loved it. I really like pesto and this was a nice variation on that.

    I didn't care for this recipe at all. The grouper was bland and the topping was way too overwhelming.

    This was way better than I even expected! And simple to make. I served it with rice and roasted kale. Yum!!!
