Despite the fancy sounding name, this is a very simple dish to prepare. It's easy enough to qualify as after-work friendly and nice enough to serve at a dinner party. Recipe is from the Chicago Tribune Good Eating.

Definitely 5 stars all the way. Extremely easy, very tasty, nice presentation and so good for you! This is one that I will keep on hand for both quick week night meals or for company - it works either way. The sauce is so good that I think next time I may marinate the fish for about 10 - 15 minutes in it before starting the cooking process just to get even more of that great flavor in the fish. Glad I grabbed this one - thanks!!!
