    • I just made this today, and it tastes so freaking good
      thank you so much for the recipe, looking forward to trying the rest of your recipes.

    • Made this last night and it was DELICIOUS! I was a little concerned when the cinnamon smelled so strong while cooking, but one bite and there was nothing to be concerned about. And right now I’m eating the leftovers, just as good! The flavors are full and the fish & veggies complement each other. I used Tilapia, as my grocery store didn’t have halibut. Also, my pot didn’t fit the three filets (1lb) very well when I put them all in, but it didn’t affect the cooking of the fish. I cooked them about 10mins because I thought 7mins wasn’t long enough. Mistake, it made the fish a little dry. Lexi’s 7 minutes was perfect. Thank you for this amazing recipe!

    • just made this and it tasted soon good thank you so much! my husband cleaned his plate and packed up the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! thanks for making an easy to follow recipe for an beginner cook like me 🙂

    • I love this! I have made a lot of recipes from LCK and never been disappointed. Even a little bit. This dish is definitely a keeper, especially for busy weeknights. I couldn’t find halibut so I used cod and it was a little bit too delicate for this dish. Next time, I’ll use a sturdier fish.

    • I just found your website from another blog and am really enjoying these great recipes, especially the fish ones. This looks exotic and fun, plus I love halibut. I heard you are from Boston, have you tried the Public Market? The fish market looks excellent.

      Wanda was asking about tomatoes in cast iron pans. The problem with cooking with acidic foods , like tomatoes, in cast iron is mainly that they can remove the polymeric coating of seasoning from the pan and also get an off flavor to your foods. This recipe should be ok however because according to Cook’s Illustrated as long as you keep the time below 30 minutes cooking with acidic foods it should not affect the coating on cast iron pans.
