I'm also pretty sure I sprinkled too much paprika on top, but I always go heavy on the spices because I don't really want to measure (if it's supposed to be sprinkled, why does it matter right?). I would probably make this again to try it out on actual Halibut fillets. Another problem I ran into was that I didn't really want to make 3 pounds of fish. So I attempted to half the recipe... if you read this blog you know that I'm really bad at halving recipes. Which is the most probable cause as to why I overdid it with the sauce topping.
In the end, it didn't taste bad, but I didn't eat the leftovers and I made the extra fish I bought a few nights later with just come Cajun seasoning. Now that was good.
Making this cake was a littler frustrating since I was so unprepared. First, I forgot my shopping list when I went to the store. Then I was flustered when I was asked to pick up a few extra things. By the time I got to the car, I realized I had forgotten to get milk so I ran back inside. Phew! Well... half way through mixing the ingredients for the batter, I see that I don't have the buttermilk. I had to go back to the store! Thankfully I had 52 cents on me, didn't want to charge that!
In the end, this cake was delicious. Particularly with cool whip on top or with a side of home made vanilla ice cream (thanks Erica!). I can't wait until next Book Club... it will be Irish themed for St. Patty's Day and will involve a ton of recipes!
I know I've been slowing down on these recipes. I'm trying to diet and be healthy so I can look my best for the wedding. I'll try to do at least one each week though. That's my goal!
