We're another Catholic family looking for good Lent recipes! I didn't have the lime on hand and I used my husband's homemade salsa in place of the picante sauce. We used ocean perch and my husband enjoyed it although he wants to try the red snapper next time. The kids didn't want to eat it but we grown-ups enjoyed it! I served this with scalloped potatoes and steamed snow peas and some wheat bread with butter. Great for our diets; thanks for the recipe! Read More

i just made this for dinner. i used perch and took advice from reviewers and added pat of butter to fish. i also drapped fish in 2 whole green onions topped w/ chopped onion then i seasoned fish w/ lemon pepper and garlic i then added about 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juic and then about 2 tablespoons pace thick and chunky salsa. i sealed the fish in foil packets and cooked on my indoor grill. they were great!!! i will make them again using different fish. i think next time i will also try some cayenne pepper to give it some heat. the dish reminded me of a carribean fish dish i had in the bahamas and in jamaica. delicious!!!!

This is an outstanding dish. I substituted ocean perch made it just as the recipe called for. I'm not much of a cook and was skeptical but it turned out delicious. It was also the first time I had ever tried to cook ocean perch. I teamed it with a baked potato and ate until I couldn't eat any more. I highly recommend it. Read More

I must admit that when I read over the ingredients I was nervous about how it would come out. I used flounder because that is what I had on-hand and I have to admit is was great. So simple to prepare and cooks so quickly. Not to mention it was very tender. I can't wait to make this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
