I have quite a few fish recipes on my blog and this one is a addition to that. Hubby got a huge kilos of fish yesterday. He got it directly from the fisherman, so it was very very cheap.. It was so fresh, I freezed few of them and cooked some immediately for dinner, This is what i made yesterday for lunch and i am sure we are gonna eat fish for the following days as well.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
