I love sea food, I am a coastal person and hence the love, but my husband is not, so I try to make fish tasty so he will start loving them and I start making them more frequently. So far successful on my husband part but eventually I realized I dont like the way I make fish because it usually is fried and so too many calories.  So finally I settled on this recipe  because its low fat and tastes awesome.

Note: I don’t have any pictures as of now but will eventually post one when I get my new super awesome DSLR 😀 (extra wide grin), my current camera was a victim of what I call the clumsy hand syndrome on a white sand beach..;) another thing I realized is that I still haven’t upgraded to a smart phone!!
