Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
I only read through the reviews after trying this recipe two times . . . wished I'd read it first. I totally agree . . . the fish needs a long time to marinade first before cooking it. The first time I tried this recipe I followed the instructions and prepared the marinade just before actually cooking the fish (in total ignorance thinking the flavour would get through!). The end result . . . the texture of the fish was fabulous and it looked and smelled fabulous just like the one I love eating at the restaurant but was disappointed that the marinade had hardly penetrated into the fish and it tasted a bit fishy. The second time I tried out this recipe, I marinated the fish for only about 45 mins, but doubled the marinade thinking it would be give it enough flavour. The end result was about the same - still a bit fishy even though I put tons of garlic. I will still definitely try this recipe out again but will marinade the fish longer as suggested by others.

Ultimate All in One Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Really simple, easy and delicious recipe! I had no chicken breast so substituted it with minced beef which was all I had in my fridge and also added leeks instead of celery, used fresh beans instead of canned ones and also added carrots for some color. The end result was very satisfying (we ate it with mixed grain rice)!
