Elegant and tasty but easy!! I have altered the cooking time. Don't let the fish get dry.

Delicious!!! I ended up using slightly less sour cream and lots more red pepper flakes. What an amazing combination. Soooo delish. I will definitely use the rest of the "sauce" as a dip for crudite tomorrow. What a great recipe!
