    I mixed the stock with 1/2 c dry white wine instead of lemon juice, and poured over the fish with additions of some fresh thyme and minced garlic. Compensated for the extra liquid by doubling the flour. Served with asparagus to soak up the extra sauce. Excellent! - 4/24/09

    No wine in the ingredients list. I asked - she said: "There were 2 different recipes. One called for wine and the other didn't. I recorded the one without the wine to try to save on calories, but the flavor is much better with the wine. .... a dry or semi-dry white wine, about 1/2 cup." - 9/24/08

    I am the daughter that Sharon632 served this fish dish and what I really told her was "PLEASE make this again...as often as you like"...The fish really picks up the wine flavor and the grapes echo the wine. Truly spectacular dish. This is so good it belongs in a 5 star restaurant!!! - 6/16/07

    I did it without the grapes, I used Haddock filet, it did need a little longer cooking but this is a keeper for me. I had always baked haddock in milk but this was really good using low sodium chicken, no msg broth. I skipped the broiler I did not want the sauce to dry out. DH and I loved it. - 2/7/10

    I made this using the wine and served with tarragon peas. I really enjoyed it, very unique and light. However, my boyfriend wasn't satisfied. He made himself a sandwich later in the evening! Might be a good idea to serve with a heavier side for those large appetites! - 10/13/08

  • A huge hit with my Hubbie! Made a few substitutions--white wine for the lemon juice and sauteed onions for the grapes. - 3/2/11

  • Don't make this with cod. I tried it and cooking time is off if you use cod. I'd decrease the liquid. I might try it again with a different fish and with wine. It's a good dish, if made with the right fish. - 2/1/11

  • Sounds interesting..I wonder about all the sauce though, trying to cut back on the rich fatty sauces. But I think I will give this a try. i like the wild rice idea from Grimscout. Sauted Summer veggies and Whole Grain Yeast Rolls with Flaxseed (more fiber!)sound like it might be good together.

  • This was just ok to me. I really love fish, but I found the sauce to be pretty bland. Not bad, but not one of our favorites. - 10/3/08
