I love this recipe. I have made it twice in two weeks. This recipe is quick and easy to make. It has rich full-bodied flavor without being heavy. It is very satisfying.

I believe there was a typographical error in the recipe. It states remove fish and breadinto bite sized pieces, I think it should havebeen, remove fish and break into bite sized pieces.

One ingredient is missing - bread. In the cooking directions, in the 1st paragraph, it says,"remove fish & bread into bite size pieces; set aside. What bread?
