Fish Fillets Italiano Recipe

My husband is an avid fisherman, so we enjoy a lot of fresh ocean fish. I found this recipe in a cookbook but adjusted it to serve two and changed the seasonings. Served with rice and a salad, it makes a delicious low-fat entree. —Margaret Risinger, Pacifica, California
