Tilapia Scaloppine
Delicious! This came out wonderfully, even though I made some mistakes and substitutions. First, I had no butter, so I upped the olive oil a bit. I used thin zucchini slices in place of mushrooms because my boyfriend won't eat food that has so much as touched a mushroom (zucchini slices work well anyway - they soak up a lot of flavor!). My biggest mistake was the size of the pan. I couldn't fit 1 lb of tilapia in a normal 12" skillet, so I layered a filet on top. Since there were layers, I thought adding a little extra white wine would help keep things from drying out. Don't do this. Use a large pan and the correct amount of white wine. Some of my fish was perfectly cooked, other fish was a little overdone and soggy. What was nice was that I ended up with a lot of leftover sauce that I served over green beans. I will buy a larger pan and do this correctly next time. Even with my mistakes it was still amazing (boyfriend said "MMmmmm")and I plan to make this regularly. Thank you!

Swordfish a la Siciliana
Wow! I have to admit, even after reading all of the positive reviews I was skeptical. However, all of the reviews are true! While it was in the oven, my boyfriend walked in and said "it smells like a restaurant in here!" All of the strange ingredients meld together to create an amazing flavor! I used shark steaks instead of swordfish because that's what we had on hand. I will be making this again shortly.

Dill Gazpacho
Very good! The dill adds a really nice touch. I'm still working on getting used to the whole cold soup thing, but I'll definitely make this again.
