Very good! I didn't have a grill so I had to bake mine. It took about 15 minutes or less on 350F. The fish was tender and delicately flavored. The salsa was a great compliment, and tasty on its ...

Mmm. The peach salsa is so good. I added a couple of garden tomatoes to it, but it would have been delightful without them. I used salmon instead of halibut (the salmon was fresh, the halibut...

I only made the salsa portion of the recipe and served it with Hawaiian quesadillas (cheese, canadian bacon and pineapple). This was a HUGE hit, and people were putting the salsa on chips, crac...

Just absolutely outstanding. I made this recipe exactly as written and it has that "wow" factor even though it's not difficult at all to make. The salsa would be good over dirt, it's that good. ...
