Notes

This was a dish I had over the weekend at a local restaurant called Mitchell's Fish Market. The dish was so good that I knew I had to have it again soon!! I think my recipe comes very close to the real thing. At the restaurant I had Sea Bass, but they didn't have that at my grocery store so I bought cod. This dish came together very quickly and is very good for the waistline!!! I used my rice cooker to make the rice, and I used the steamer attachment to cook the fish.
