Delicious dish! A local restaurant serves fish Veracruz style and it is my dad's favorite. Just perfect for Father's day dinner.notyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
This is my first attempt with new fish dishes for the week. Hubby said "give it a 5"! I used salsa with black beans and corn and all the other flavors (he liked the capers) melded nicely. I served it with fried polenta rounds, the perfect side.fancypants in Mooresville loved it
Made this dish last night; was good but would use a little less salsa and more tomato. The amount of salsa took away from the flavor of the halibut. Good dish - would make it again.mihirshah in Menlo Park loved it
