  • “I really liked this, but my husband ADORED it.I’m always begging for comments and he is usually too busy eating to praise, praise, praise, which is what I want.He stopped the dinner convo 3 times to talk about it.He even said, “be sure to add this to your regular repetoire.”wow!It was easy, one dish, comforting yummy cheesy sauce with a great crust.tx so much!”

  • “Excellent! I just add some mushrooms and broccolis, everybody loved it!Thanks a lot”

  • “Loved this!My whole family loved it which is a rare delight!We will next time add some seasoning to the fish like pepper and such but it was so good!Thanks so much for posting!”

  • “This is so good!I added cooked mushrooms and peas, but this recipe would be delicious as is.Thanks for one that will be made many times!”

  • “Very good.I tried to scale it down to serve two, and made one or two mistakes, but it was still excellent, and really easy!”

  • “This was so easy and very good. I was looking for a different way to serve red snapper because DH is not really fond of ish, he loved this and ate twice as much as he would normally!I wanted a one dish meal so I too added frozen peas and some cayenne pepper for a little kick.It was very good and I will make it again, thanks for posting.”

  • “This was wonderful! Great comfort food, though I will admit to making a few additions and changes… I added 1 cup of frozen peas and a 6 oz can of crab meat to the fish and some parsley, dill, dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to the sauce. I also cheated and made the scones as drop biscuits on top of the fish and sauce. Thank you so much!(Update:After I finished my dinner, DH had 2 more helpings!If that doesn’t say great recipe, I don’t know what does!)”

  • “Realy easy to make.I made it with Coley and a packet sauce! “
