Review This Recipe
Wonderful and easy to make
wonderful taste and one of my best seafood dishes. I had people for dinner and everyone was asking for this recipe. I didn't marinate the fish, I added the white wine, little of dried oregano and white pepper to the tomato mixture and I just grilled the fish and poured the mixture on it. wonderful taste ...very easy to make.
A bit too salty
Loved the flavor combinations--lots of pizzazz in this recipe. I used tilapia, which is mild, and this really jazzed it up. I would, however, cut down on the Maggi--a bit too salty for my taste.
