“Before my divorce, I found myself the proud owner of lots of fish....he spent an awful lot of time fishing! So I had to find numerous ways of preparing it, so that I didn't have to eat the same thing over and over again! I can't say I miss the ex-husband, but I really do miss the fish! The sesame oil adds a nutty flavor....if you don't like sesame oil, use butter or margarine. I live on the gulf coast, so my fish of choice is red snapper, grouper, or amberjack...if I'm lucky triggerfish! A nice firm, white meat fish is preferably...nothing fishy tasting like mackerel!”
