I love fish, particularly seafood. Being originally from Florida that wasn't difficult to come by. Living in Wisconsin, however, I am learning to deal with different fish and frozen seafood.

When I make this, I always pair it with asparagus and spinach and a side of white rice. It is simple with very few ingredients, things that I typically already have in the house.

And its healthy too!!
