REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
A fantastic recipe! I do not usually like tomatoes cooked or baked but they were delicious in this dish. The spice was a perfect accompaniment to the meatiness of the halibut. I also made a variation by using Mexican style tomato sauce when I didn't have fresh jalepenos at home. It was a bit more spicy but also made a little more sauce, which we loved.
