  1. OOOOoooooooo!

    I never know what to do with fish, I usually end up making the same thing with fish, so this is different!

    I love pictures of precooked ingredients too. I have more of those than of finished dishes.


    1. So sorry for the long delay,anyway, don’t get discouraged, I was like that before, and I drool @ many people’s gorgeous posts so I kept practicing until I replicate it. Keep trying until it becomes second nature, you don’t want to stop until you get it right. Eventually you are so energized and inspired that you are creating your very own, so addicting! If fish is your Waterloo, lots of books and chefs on line who specializes with fish. I also own an old book ‘Fish and Shellfish superb ways with seafood by Kate Whiteman. Good luck and thanks for driving @ my humble blog, you don’t realize that you have a cool blog!
