  1. That sounds yummy! I rarely think of grilling fish; I know the taste would be fabulous but I’m always afraid it will fall apart and fall between the grates.

  2. Delish. I have eaten chicken and pork chops this week without batter. Next week it will be fish. Thanks for the idea and thnks for sharinf at #aclwcc. Pinned & Tweeted.
