I have to confess ~ I have a fear of fish. It happened a long time ago. I bought a beautiful flounder, dusted it with a little flour, fried it, tried it and cried over it. It was so bad, even my faithful, I’ll eat anything cat turned up her nose. Since that time I indulged my passionate love of fish by always ordering fish in restaurants. In fact, when I’m in France and eating at a restaurant, I always order the fish of the day dish and I have NEVER been disappointed. The French know fish and they have fabulous fish recipes. Here is one that is not only fabulous, it is fail-proof. I did it. Believe me. Et voila:
