Notes: So, my accident I bought $20 fish, so already I was going to make this a good meal. You can buy any priced fish, just make sure to cook it through. This dish is so light and perfect. It makes you feel good and healthy. You can serve it over spinach, or with brown rice. It is lovely. I ate it, and then my roommate took the already seasoned pan and she cooked herself a scramble. She said it was killer. Lime juice would be too tart for this, so done sub that, but you can sub any white fish in here. Enjoy!
