*You may substitute any thin flaky white fish such as sole, flounder, Red Snapper or Grouper. Note that thin fish cooks very quickly if your sautee pan is hot enough once the fish is lightly browned, you will only need a few seconds to finish cooking the fish as it will continue to cook as you make your plates.
