I made it once according to the recipe and it was pretty good. The second time I took a little extra trouble and cut up a fresh tomato and a couple of serrano peppers (instead of the canned) and it was super-delicious. The flavors seemed a lot more vibrant and interesting. My husband even gave it a 4.9 and he begs me not to make fish. Read More

This is good. I used canned tomatoes with lime and cilantro. I forgot to buy cilantro so I didn't put in extra in. I seasoned my fish with a little salt pepper and garlic powder before adding the other toppings. I also put all the fish in one pan and covered it with foil instead of individually wrapping each fish. It stilled turned out pretty good. I placed thinly sliced lime on top of each piece. I would recommend adding more lime slices to give it that extra flavor. Ultimately I will make this again. Read More

This was great! I used fresh tomatoes and skipped the chiles. Went heavy on the cilantro and added salt pepper cumin and a little paparika. Served it over the mexican rice III by Alansmom on this site and it was delish! Read More

Tried this with my family several times. Kids and wife actually like it a bit better when I substitute the diced tomatoes and chiles with a fiery homemade salsa. Great recipe and easy to make. Read More

My entire family loved this recipe. I skipped the olive oil and used PAM spray on the foil instead to save a few calories. I've tried this recipe with all types of white fish and its great every time. Try using pineapple or mango pico...both are yummy! Read More

I made this recipe for my darling husband and myself tonight. I found the fish to be lacking something; I haven't put my finger on it yet. I will try this recipe again but I will add some spices like salt pepper garlic etc. My husband said it was good and he would eat it again. It's great meal to loss weight too but I have to figure out what it lacks. Read More

I thought the fish was kinda bland recipe calls for no salt and with fresh fish of this type there isn't much of a flavor. I also thought that the only flavor that was well absorbed was the LIME nothing like biting into a spicy tart lime. the fish did taste better 2 days later But I had so many leftovers I wouldn't try this recipe again. It was A Big Dissapointment Read More
