i forgot to post about this amazing fish i made last week.
it was from my
60 min. Gourmet
book,
you know, the one with the shrimp recipe?
(click on "recipes" at the bottom on this post to see other recipes i've listed)
anyway, i do make other things than fish
from the book, but i've been trying to
eat
more

lately.
it looks like lasagna right now.

Sounds yummy. One question. Does it make the kitchen smell super fishy? (I notice that when I bake fish it often smells worse than when I broil it.)

But I was thinking maybe the tomato would keep it from getting such a strong odor. (I really do want to know this, okay? Because I'm going to try it if you tell me the smell doesn't permeate your house for two days.)
