    This was just wonderful - very easy to prepare and tasted great. The texture is a really nice mix of the soft fish, deep orzo, and vegetables. I skipped adding salt and pepper to the simmering sauce, and just salted (sea salt) and peppered the fish. The salt from the stewed tomoatoes, olives and capers more than made up for it. Very highly recommend. Served it with a warm french baguette. Wow!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
