Recipe by sutee

This is a wonderfully tasty recipe. Of course, it is best with very fresh fish. I always get raves when I serve this.

I made this the other night and it was just wonderful! My husband devoured it! The cognac with the red wine vinegar gave it such a nice tangy flavor. Will make this one again!
