  1. I scaled it down 2 servings. Since I read reviews that indicated the onion overpowered the flavors, I halved the onion and used a little more dijon mustard. It was really, really good and I'm disappointed I don't have any leftovers to heat up today. :) My hubby was skeptical since he does not like - Read more ...
  2. Great recipe! I did add my own spin to it, I took the onion and 1/3 cup mayo and added in 1 tbsp. dijon mustard, I blended these in the food processor. When the mixture was smooth, I seasoned the fish with salt and pepper and garlic.Then I smeared the onion mixture on the fish. - Read more ...
  3. I'm not usually so harsh on the new recipes I try -- trying to give them all SOME redeeming value -- but this was disgusting. It might be saved by cooking the onions first but the onion was so overpower that this was a wasted dish for us.
  4. I love the recipe, it can be used on chicken, salmon, catfish or mackrel, and it is soooo easy, the only thing I changed was a stopped using the onion and added garlic, but I use this recipe probably once every 2 weeks, my husband loves it!
  5. My husband loves fish so I tried this recipe for something different. It was really easy used on-hand ingredients and really tasted good. I'm not a fish fan particularly but I even ate the leftovers the next day for lunch. We'll definately make it again.
  6. These flavors did not match well for me. Too much onion and the honey dijon clashed with the onion.
  7. This was a truly fabulous meal. Definitely liked the non-fried aspect of it. I substituted dried parsley flakes for dried oregano and it was still yummy. Also paired it with the 'Sweet and Nutty Moroccan Couscous' whose sweetness perfectly complemented the tangy flavor of this dish.
  8. Delicious!! I was looking for something different to make in seafood, and this was it, the flavors were very good together. The only thing I added to the mustard and onions, was about 1 tsp of minced garlic. It's a winner, my husband and son loved it! It will be a regular for our Lenten - Read more ...
  9. Oh how wonderful!!! I also like the fact that this is not breaded fried or flour-battered! Sure saves on calories. I only had catfish 'nuggets' that are just odds and ends pieces of catfish. I also had some honey-orange dijon mustard that just was fabulous with this. Such few ingredients make this so simple and - Read more ...
