SWEET & SOUR FISH SALAD
COOKBOOK: THE BIG BOOK OF SALADS
It was nice to serve fish in a salad dish! This was a nice light dish and great to make with any left over fish fillets you may have in the freezer.
This salad isn’t for all, in particular those who are fussy fish eater. I personally found it light and refreshing. My hubby preferred the fish to be warmed up and away from the salad ingredients.
It certainly made a statement on the plate! Lots of colour for a summer dish!
