    I used tuna steaks instead of sword fish, my local grocery store hasn't had any sword fish come in for a while... With that being said, I didn't like it at all... I couldn't even finish eating it. My daughter and son wouldn't eat it and my husband didn't like it either. I knew he wouldn't like it to begin with, he hates lemons. So...I took it to my mom and she loved it. So it is definitely a taste thing. So...sorry for the low rating.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation
