These days make me realise that fish is generally grilled or fried but, there are other amazing way to serve it like this one.

Furthermore, the result is amazing thanks to a secret ingredient: Champagne or white wine. Although the fish’s quality is more important than the sauce. It is matter to me that the freshness and delicate taste of the fish is preserved as much as possible. So, I usually buy it on the same day I decide to cook it for lunch or dinner.
