The fish dish for people who don’t like fish

by | Oct 29, 2015 | Blog, Healthy Recipes, Senior Community Meals | 0 comments

Although fish can often be a difficult recipe to impress a crowd, herbed white fish casserole always goes over very well with our Senior Meals guests and has become a regular part of the menu. The recipe was fished out of an old cook book and adapted for us by one of our long time prep volunteers. The fish is topped with herbs and spices like dill, parsley, garlic, and pepper which season the fish perfectly. This recipe is a great way to incorporate the healthy aspects of fish into a hearty meal.
