I made this with swordfish, and was very disappointed. Maybe marlin would have worked better, a little confusing because the name of the recipe is marlin but the ingredients say swordfish. Anyway, I used four mefium swordfish steaks, and cut back on the amount of butter used to bake the fish in, but it was still soggy. Grilling the fish would have been much better. For the tomato/basil mixture I replaced half of the butter with olive oil, if I tried again I would have used only a bit of olive oil. There was too much basil for the tomatoes I used, I used three medium sized tomatoes, I think about half of the basil would have been enough. When the tomato/basil mix starts to boil, instead of reducing the heat, I should have removed the pan from the heat- the basil was overcooked and overpowering. I gave this three stars because my husband liked it, a good thing because there are lots of leftovers.
