Recipe by Ginny E.
This is my version of a very popular local dish. Even people who don't like fish enjoy this. If your family doesn't like the fishy taste make sure to cut off pieces with a brown tint to them - that is the fat and it does taste fishy. Can substitute any white mild fish, chicken or even Salmon.
