I came up with this dish as a wonderful way to use some fresh vegetables and herbs, and to have a healthier meal using my hubby's favorite fish. You really cant tell that you're eating herbs and vegetables, but the flavor is just so good! Using the Wondea and a butter spray with the lemon juice and veg makes a nice glaze to top the fish, or put on a bed of rice (I use Basmati) or noodles.
