My husband is not much of a fish lover but when I made this recipe with halibut he very much enjoyed it. It's very simple.

My husband prepared this while I was at work, The only adjustments we made was that we baked it since we don't have a grill. We baked it at 450 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. I'm not a fish lover either but this was great! Read More

A great recipe. However, when grilling a flaky white fish, I recommend using a fish-specific grilling piece or separating the fish from the grill on a piece of aluminum foil. Otherwise, the fish will break apart and fall into your grill. Read More

Husband who does NOT care for fish loved this dish. Marinated the fish for two hours, flipping the bag several times and then proceeded to grill. NOTE: The olive oil in the marinade causes flare ups - watch the fish carefully for the first couple of minutes until the oil burns off ..... Read More

I want to start off by saying that I am NOT a fish person. I have really been trying to eat healthier.. and giving fish another try. In saying that.. I have tried several recipes that make the "even fish people like this" claim. This one definitely delivered! It tasted just like steak. Mmm!! No fishy flavor at all... I followed the recipe exactly (omited the basil because I didn't have any on hand) Read More

I made this at my restaurant in Amsterdam as a last minute "FIND ME A RECIPE"!!! Great! I served it over a bed of rucola, with grilled artichokes and red paprika, with a few pine nuts. It looked and tasted great! Cook 1 min longer each side for thicker steaks. Read More

This was so flavorful and good! It's my favorite way to marinade fish. I sauted the fish instead of grilling and it was excellent. Read More

I used tilapia fillets and really liked the flavor with this recipe. However I should have cut back on the salt! I will make this again but will use half the salt. Read More

Wonderful wonderful wonderful! I had decided to make rice pilaf and even though I'm not a fish eater it just seemed right to have fish with the rice. I told my husband I'd have fish but he had to BBQ it... he told me he would BBQ if I found him a good recipe. Well this was it! The fish tasted so good I didn't even use tarter sauce which is usually a must for me when it comes to fish. Like some of the others I used fresh basil from my garden too. Thank you for this GREAT recipe! Read More

As per usual with these reviews it seems someone in the household is not a big fish fan but this worked well. I added more garlic as I am wont to do. Used the Hamilton Beach indoor grill for ten minutes. Perfect fish. I added a little of the marinade on the top of mine after cooking because there was some garlic just sitting there. I will try to use it on soome of the fish that is higher in omega-3s next time. See: http://www.oceansalive.org/eat.cfm Overall highly recommended. Read More
