Expert tips for this Delicious Fish Recipe

Recipes are meant to be an inspiration. That’s the way we see it. Don’t feel like you have to make this fish recipe exactly the way our recipe shows. Get creative. Experiment. Try something different. This recipe is all about what appeals to you. Here are some ideas in case you need a little boost with adapting this recipe:

  • If you prefer a white flakey fish to a firm meaty fish choose snapper over trout
  • Salmon is great as long as it's not farm-raised with no added color.
  • You can substitute chicken breast in this dish
  • If you really want to behave, serve on a bed of sauteed spinach

Incidentally, If it weren't for honeybees there would be no almonds or honey, or any of the veggies that we suggest to serve with this bee-inspired fish dish.
