Potato Fish Skillet Recipe

I've been fixing this stir-fry for years, often using bass since we live on a lake where bass are quite common. When I first tried the recipe, my wife declared it a winner. We especially like this one-dish meal, which contains all the necessary ingredients. -Jeff Brown, Colon, Michigan

"Good recipe. I did a lot differently. I used about one tablespoon each of olive oil and butter. Mahi Mahi instead of bass. Maybe a tablespoon of fresh rosemary from the garden."
