Here is another great recipe from my cookbook that is sure to please seafood & fish lovers alike. Since I am allergic to most seafood, I can't eat it, but I wear gloves & prepare it for my husband Dan. He loves it, & even though I can't have it, I don't feel that I should deprive him of eating it. So this is another quick & easy recipe, that goes great with my Tangy Apple Cole Slaw, and some Macaroni & Cheese. Two of his gavorite side dishes to go with it.
