Recipe by Scandigirl
This wonderful fish recipe is a must if you are a fish lover! We serve it with small fingerling potatoes or the small red skinned potatoes, steamed whole fresh green beans, and steamed fresh whole small carrots. For dessert if I have guests I always make a great Creme Brulee; sometimes if I'm in a rush I will buy Oetker's package, but mostly I make Creme Brulee #54681 by Mooseybear, and I always use the whole vanilla bean instead of liquid vanilla!
