Try this delicious and healthy recipe when you want to eat something different any time of the year! In springtime, I like pairing this dish with brown rice and asparagus.

Fish is an important source of omega 3 fatty acids, a healthy fat for our bodies. It also provides an excellent source of protein to our diet.
