“I just re-found this recipe while going through my Mom's old file box. She used to make this quite often when I was a child. She probably found the recipe in the newspaper. This is a quick, easy and delicious recipe using ingredients that I usually have on hand. It's also very versatile as for substituting....I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried. I only had 1 can of diced tomatoes so I used the can of Ro-tel, which I did have on hand. Also, use any combo of fish/shellfish...tonight I made this using 2 small tilapia fillets and 1/2 lb. of bay scallops, it was a nice combo. This is a great cold weather will give you the warm fuzzies. I served it with freshly baked dinner rolls, though a crusty bread would be nice too.”
