We had this dish tonight along with the Lemon Chardonnay Grilled Chicken and the Sesame Steamed Broccoli. Oh my gosh what a delicious meal. My husband even liked the Asparagus and he is not an Asparagus fan at all! We fixed the Broccoli dish for him and he raved about all 3 menu items! I am diabetic and recently have determined I have a sensitivity to gluten and this website has been fabulous in helping us plan menus and preparing shopping lists and just helping us to eat healthy and be more prepared for cooking appropriate meals rather than the usual "fast" food either thru fast food restaurants or even the unhealthy fast food we had been eating. Thank you My for providing these tasty, healthy and delicious recipes.

Excelent with the crispy herbed shrimp but also could support other pan fired or baked fish.
