Basa Fillet in Rosé Wine

My bridal shower was 3 years ago, today! Each of the guests at my bridal shower brought me a recipe on a recipe card which were all placed into my “recipe box”. I have only tried a handful of the recipes over the past 3 years, but I hope to one day get through them all. So here I begin my recipe box adventure…

This recipe was written by my piano teacher, Arina. Her recipe was originally for fillet of sole in white wine, but I adapted it slightly based on what I had on hand. You could use any type of fish fillet, and you can easily substitute the wine for juice, or water. However, I do believe using wine provides the most flavour!

  5. Cover with aluminum foil and poach in the oven for 20 minutes.

We had ours with a simple risotto, thinly sliced potatoes, avocado, green beans, and a balsamic salad. A simple, healthy, and delicious meal for 2!
