For anyone else reading this recipe, ALL the fish should be fresh. Please do not attempt to use canned as one reviewer suggested. In addition, green chilies are not the same thing as (or a substitute for) the chili sauce called for in the recipe. Furthermore, if you click on the link for the chili sauce, recipezaar even describes it and tells you how to make a substitution.
I disliked this recipe. The combination of the sweetness of the meat (I used fresh, not canned)and the green chilis gave it a bit of an off taste.
The chili sauce in this recipe is the red sauce with horseradish, not green chilis. The kind you use when your making shrimp cocktail, not the Mexican chilies.
Pixie, don't shoot me but I did substitute rd snapper for the halibut but kept everything else the same. (As I live in gulf shores, al snapper is easier than halibut. I was testing this to use as a casual appetizer meal when company comes to visit for Thanksgiving - It is Delicious!! Can't wait to make it for my company. Thanks for the recipe!! Made it several days ago but am behind in my reviews...sorry!
