Recipe by Girl from India
This is a recipe that could be good for Ash Wednesday when we traditionally don't eat meat. I have stored it for use later though and not made it yet. It looks very interesting. From a Readers Digest cookbook. Let me know how it turns out. YOu can use any fish of your choice but it does say that it is best if you include one smoked variety too.
