Chilly Butt


This was one of my dads Favorite dishes. He loved to cook new things, but only when the mood struck him. He spent some time living on a farm when he was young and would make some very unappetizing things. He loved fish and this was close to the only thing we kids would eat if he was cooking. It's an easy and healthy dish.
