Lemon and Dill Fish with Red Cabbage and Caraway over Mashed Potatoes

Cooking Light
The caraway is left whole in this recipe so that its flavor is gentle. Caraway, dill, and lemon give this complete meal a Scandinavian feel. Any thick cut of a white fish, such as halibut, snapper, or haddock, is a good choice.
