    I made this for dinner for my husband and my parents, and they all absolutely loved it.......every plate was licked clean! I read all the reviews beforehand and it seemed the only complaint some had was that the fish itself was bland. What I did was marinade the steaks in 8 oz. of Italian Dressing for a few hours. That really made a difference, it kept the fish moist and flavorful and complimented the toppings nicely! Also if you are able, try to use every ingredient in its freshest form - it really helps the taste! I used garlic and herb feta instead of plain and that was great. The last thing I did based on some reviews was loosely cover the dish with foil for the first 8 min., then I uncovered and baked another 8 min. I could really tell how the foil helps the feta not brown too quickly and keeps the tomatoes from turning mushy. Besides its spectacular taste, this dish is a beautiful presentation, perfect for company! I will use again and again! P.S. If you can't get fresh halibut, Trader Joe's sells it for $9.99 lb. Its flash frozen, so it's the next best thing to fresh - you really can't taste the difference!  -  06 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This is an amazing recipe. I used more a bit more vegetables than called for and added crushed red pepper and lemon juice and it was just sumptuous! Will definately serve this to guests. Thanks, Dakota!  -  18 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Absolutely incredible!! Being from Washington state my husband is a serious critic when it comes to fish, especially halibut and salmon. He said this is the best he's ever had and that's saying a lot considering his brother-in-law is an Alaskan halibut fisherman and his sister cooks some amazing dishes with halibut. I did marinate in Italian dressing for an hour, used the diced tomatoes with basil and oregano as previously suggested. Used fillet instead of steaks, so it took a little longer to bake. While the fish was baking I sauteed mushrooms and garlic in olive oil and added those to the dish before presenting to the table. Yummm, will make again and again! I can't wait to make this for my sister-in-law!! Thank you for this wonderful dish!  -  06 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
