    great recipe,I use red cod fillets instead of sole.

    • Anita Anita says:

      Oo... that must have been really delicious. Sole is kinda cheap in comparison, hehe, but it works :)

    So amazing and so easy to make. I serve this with a bed of rice (cooked with the chopped scallion stems) along with stir fried spinach and onion with garlic and corn (or red pepper for colour). It’s an easy crowd pleaser you can put together in 30 mins or less.
