Oh my god,oh my god oh my god....This recipe is DIVINE!!!! I cooked it for my partner as I love to experiment and I have recently given up eating meat, so I am looking for new and exciting recipes with fish... All i can say is that if I was served this dish in a restaurant I would be highly impressed, and probabaly back there at least twice a month for this fabulously tasty dish... and the best thing is that it's so simple to prepare! Thanks for sharing it with me,
