We enjoyed this and thought the flavors were very subtle. I used fresh sage and parsley, both snipped from my small herb garden. I used cod and also thickened the sauce with a bit of cornflour. Served with rice.

I didn't bread the fish with flour or fry it, I used Talapia and grilled it. I made the sauce with fresh sage & parsley. I also thickened it a bit with cornstarch. This is a very tasty sauce. My family enjoyed it very much. I will definately make it again. Thanks Gay!
