Roasted Fish with Light Herb Sauce Recipe

Roasted Fish with Light Herb Sauce Recipe

An easy sauce with the flavors of Provence makes fish fillets into a meal worthy of company. I like to add steamed rice and sautéed spinach to complete the plate. The recipe works with many types of fish such as cod, flounder, sole, trout, tilapia or catfish. —Suzanne Banfield, Basking Ridge, New Jersey
