    I'm the one who submitted the recipe, and I have since made the fish on the stove top in a skillet. I think it is much better, the sauce is much thicker and the fish more tender! Give it a try!  -  25 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    There is a serious problem with this recipe that needs to be corrected. 200 degrees for an hour will not cook this fish, not even close. I thought it seemed a bit strange but followed the recipe as stated. As they say, fool me once... I actually served a dinner party of four (one, a chef) with warm, uncooked fish, bites were taken before we realized what had happened. I had to pull the plates off the table, pan sear the fillets, and re-serve piles of fish, peppers and tomatoes. Attractive presentation was long lost. I also added a shake of chili powder on each, as the paprika sauce itself was a bit one-dimensional. Please request to have this error fixed before others suffer the same embarrassment - to say nothing of the health implications....  -  14 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Loved this meal, & so did my fiancee. One thing-I think you meant 300 degrees, not 200. Thanks, I'll be making this again.  -  16 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
