This was an AMAZING dish. Always looking for fish/seafood dishes especially for Fridays during lent. I think it was on par with something I would get at Red Lobster, but more affordable. I bought all the ingredients plus couscous and crusty bread for 6 people for only $30! I will definitely be making this again in the very near future. Thanks for such a great recipe not to mention easy to make.
