This recipe was fantastic. Even my sometimes critical husband (who doesn't even really like fish) raved about it. I did make some minor changes however. I had no "spiced" tomatoes so I used canned diced tomatoes and sauted 3 cloves of garlic 1 small onion finely chopped and 1 small red pepper diced. I added the saute mixture to the tomatoes and put ove r the Boursin mixture. To all who want to save calories spray baking dish with Pam and use a light herbed cream cheese ( Boursin is not necessary)!!! Will add to my regular rotation! Read More

I give it a one because it was edible. Soggy fish. Just bake your fish without the soggy stuff. Read More

This might not have been much to look at in terms of plating and presentation but man oh man was this ever delicious. Because this dish had Boursin cheese in it which Hubs hates but agreed to tolerate for me I deliberately made a hearty pasta dish to go with thinking that this fish dish was going to be a total bust. Wow what a surprise - for both of us. Best fish recipe I've made in awhile. I had fresh tomatoes and peppers from my garden so I used them in place of the canned tomatoes. I sauteed some shallots and finely chopped green pepper added some fresh minced garlic then cooked that a bit before adding the fresh diced tomatoes. Since Hubs was so cooperative with the Boursin I deliberately skipped the Parmesan which he REALLY dislikes. I didn't miss it. The fish was flaky tender and moist; the sauce to die for. This was so good even Boursin Hating Hubs loved it! Served with Penne with Garlicky Broccolini also from this site this was just an excellent meal. Read More

I loved this recipe- only changes I made were to use some happy cow cheese (garlic and herb flavor) and a can of fire roasted tomatoes. My husband loved it will be a repeat dinner! Read More

Very easy and yummy way to fix fish. Instead of Boursin I used two wedges of Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb cheese which was less fat but just as good. I also cut the butter down to 1 tbl. since it was just the two of us and I only had 1/2 lb. of fish. Excellent Valentine Meal! Read More

Delicious! i made this 4 days ago and i am making it again...it is very tasty and super easy to make. I would recommend de drain de tomatoes pretty good in order to have a creamy sauce nd the end the first time it was a bit watery. and I put more parmesan on top so it would be nice and "gratinee". it is pretty fool proof! enjoy!

Easy and so very good. I used haddock (much better than our cod) and first time tried Laughing Cow but much prefer Boursin. As one reviewer suggested I drained the tomatoes so the sauce would not be watery. Will be making again and again. Did not need to use butter at all. Read More

I made this with swordfish steaks and it was awesome. I hadn't used boursin cheese before and now that I have I'll be using it in many other recipes. This dish practically makes itself and really impresses. Thank you! Read More
