This is a brilliant recipe. So simple yet tasting so good. I used sole fish for this recipe and it was probably one the best fish dish i have ever served. The herbs sauce taste zesty and even my seven-year-old ate it without complaining of eating teh green garnish! I mixed the fresh herbs (plenty!) in the sauce the last 30secs before removing the pan from the stove. Oh! I also mixed in one flat tea spoon of sugar in the sauce and it was excellent. Kudos!
