    I was underwhelmed by this dish. It just seemed that it needed something. Yes it was easy and healthy, but I think there are better, more flavorful fish dishes on this website. Plus at $26/ lb. at my local grocer, halibut is too expensive for a throw together weeknight meal.

    This was really great, but I would say it's only enough for 2 people. I don't eat a whole lot, but I still could have eaten a little more. Definitely double for 4 people

    Super yummy and easy! Couldn't find mint at the store this week and forgot about the lime wedges on the side -- still great. Served with a green salad with seasoned rice vinegar, but sauteed snowpeas or cucumber salad would be nice.

    I made this with tilapia and it was absolutely delicious. I wouldn't necessarily classify this as a quick and easy recipe--the sauce prep took me about 20 minutes with all the herb cleaning, drying, chopping, etc. Since the rice part only called for half the can of coconut milk, I made Cooking Light's delicious Mango-Coconut Rice Pudding with the other half.

    My husband said he would eat it again and would likely give 3 stars. I changed something's which might also impact what I thought about this recipe. First, I dusted seabass instead of halibut case that is what we had on hand. This needs a firm whitefish like halibut. Added 1/2 of a seeded Serrano chili to the rice as well as a little thai red curry paste to give it a little more zip. This seemed to help add some flavor. The sauce was good but seemed heavy on fish sauce. A little blending or a little less fish sauce might be ok. Good start to a delicious dish. Just needs some tweaking .

    This was delicious, my family gobbled it up! I grilled the halibut instead of steaming it and added a touch more red curry paste to the sauce. I think the grilling adds a little more flavor to the halibut.
