    This was great. We used whiting, no olive oil, fennel or bay leaf. We also cooked it all together on the stove top on medium for about 15 or 20 minutes. It was awesome and healthy...Thank you! We will be making this again, and we told others about it! - 1/5/09

    This was a BIG HIT in our family. I've made it with flounder and tilapia. LOVE IT. I did add a small fennel bulb and couple stalks of celery. SO GOOD!! My husband has asked me to make it again. Big deal in our house, as I am a fish lover and he is just so so about it.

    THANKS for the RECIPE!!

    I have been looking for a recipe for fish that would be healthy, tasty (not fishy) and easy. THIS IS IT!
    I will incorporate this recipe into my food plan at least once a week.

    I was out of apple juice, but used mango juice instead. This was absolutely like a party in my mouth! YUM! - 8/19/08

    Very, very tasty! I didn't have whole tomatoes so I used a 14 1/2 oz. can of diced tomatoes. I also used 1/2 tsp. of ground fennel instead of 1 tsp. of crushed seeds. I had to use dried orange zest instead of fresh but, even with all these adjustments, it came out delicious. Definitely a keeper. - 5/10/09
