I'm not a fan of red meat but I do love fish!! This is an easy recipe to follow! Sea fish is healthier but it get's tiring after a while, so I often prefer fresh water fish. Good hub!

Once a long time ago I was served a spicy fish dish that I've always wanted to duplicate, and lo and behold, I think this sounds like it could be very similar. I have bookmarked and will be preparing it soon. Thank you!
