Years ago, I adapted this recipe from a 1970s paperback Booth's (Pillsbury) Fish and Seafood Cookbook. It has always had rave reviews from tasters here. It's on the stove now and two of our past exchange students, who are visiting now, want to know why I never served it before. It's quick, easy, tasty and nourishing. We love the herbs, so I tend to use up to a full teaspoon of each.
