This recipe was "pretty good". It needed something--aha!--Maybe it was the basil that I forgot to put in? Anyway--might try it again but WITH the basil! I served it with halibut. It really wasn't quite good enough to serve for a special occasion, I didn't think. But Basil might liven it up quite a bit.

We liked this meal a lot - but we had to beef it up a bit to satisfy my husband's appetite. To that end we served it with a salad - romaine, garbanzo beans, avocado and feta (brick feta crumbled) and dressed with lemon infused olive oil, sweet balsamic vinegar and a bit of wholegrain mustard, along with some rosemary bread. The other thing that I did to give the salsa just a little kick was to add a splash of sweet balsamic vinegar (I used Ariston) instead of all regular balsamic. I have to say, the best thing that happened was when everything mixed together on my plate. The feta and the creamy avocado mixed with the tangy salsa and the buttery fish. DeLISH. Even the garbanzo beans got in on the act and tasted better than you could imagine. We actually opted for a light Chardonnay (because it was what we had) and it paired nicely with our "beefed up" version. We'll definitely make this again, but I agree with the other poster - not for a special occasion.

This was just OK. There are a lot more interesting fish recipes on this site, and ones we have liked more, so I won't be making this again.

Light, fresh, and naturally sweet. Family loved it mounded on pan sauteed white fish fillets. Served with a savory sausage, bean and kale soup, and lots of french bread and butter.
