Many cooks recommend boiling fish as an ideal way to enhance their flavor. Two rough fish species that have an exceptional taste when prepared in this manner are burbot (or laywer) and fresh water drum. Both species supply boneless fillets
This dish is best served with potatoes, a vegetable, pickles, coleslaw, and rye bread. Super!
