    We're another Catholic family looking for good Lent recipes! I didn't have the lime on hand, and I used my husband's homemade salsa in place of the picante sauce. We used ocean perch and my husband enjoyed it, although he wants to try the red snapper next time. The kids didn't want to eat it, but we grown-ups enjoyed it! I served this with scalloped potatoes and steamed snow peas, and some wheat bread with butter. Great for our diets; thanks for the recipe!  -  03 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    i just made this for dinner. i used perch and took advice from reviewers and added pat of butter to fish. i also drapped fish in 2 whole green onions, topped w/ chopped onion, then i seasoned fish w/ lemon pepper and garlic, i then added about 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juic and then about 2 tablespoons pace thick and chunky salsa. i sealed the fish in foil packets and cooked on my indoor grill. they were great!!! i will make them again using different fish. i think next time i will also try some cayenne pepper to give it some heat. the dish reminded me of a carribean fish dish i had in the bahamas and in jamaica. delicious!!!!  -  25 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
