This recipe has been sitting in my "To Try" recipe file for about a year. I finally got around to trying it and was so glad I didn't have to share this meal with anyone but myself. Sooo Good! I got this recipe from Cooks.com unfortunately the person who submitted this forgot to include the directions. So I winged it. Sure hope you enjoy this as much as I did. You can use any kind of white fish. I used catfish fillets and it was excellent. I did alter the recipe for my taste. Food.com does not recognize the phrase cooking wine but that is what I use.
