I did use fresh wild halibut (thanks to Costco). I can't get good tomatoes so I used canned. I never follow the salt content on CL recipes so I just salt and peppered the fish as I normally would and made sure I got a good sear on both sides. Really nice flavor - simple but if you use good ingredients like fresh rosemart and good fish this will have great flavor.

Used flash-frozen halibut that was on sale. Followed recipe and the result was bland and uninspired. Too bad. Served with garlic ciabatta sticks & sauteed spinach. This may be great for you, but recommend you think twice.

meh. it was alright, but for the price of Halibut (and I can get it readily) I wouldn't make it again. The flavors are OK but nothing really stands out here. THe rosemary isn't strong enough, I added more in the beginning and then some at the end and it still was not very strong. Might need more beans too, it's OK.

Pretty good, a little watery. Halibut was not in season so we used tilapia instead.

This is a fabulous recipe! We used Tilapia instead of halibut, because the whole family likes it. It substitutes nicely. I would fix this recipe any day of the week, possibly multiple times a week.

Used cod instead of halibut (because of cost) so it turned out to be more like a stew. I used fresh rosemary which I think added the flavor it needed, and used canned tomatoes. I will keep this on hand for a quick dish. Served with good bread and a salad.

This is one of my favorite ways to serve fish. I serve it over some orzo to soak up the wonderfully flavorable broth. The receipe calls for halibut, but mahi mahi, cobia, sea bass or similiar fish will work just as well.

Very quick to make. Fairly simple flavors but delicious. We used line-caught cod because it was available and it came out well. We served it with lemony kale salad with pears and avocado. It made a substantial, after-workout, quick dinner. Will definitely make again.
