A very tasty one pot dinner. I usually save my carbs and fat for the day to enjoy this. Very easy to make and the recipe is very forgiving on the sauce/spices. Can adjust the oil and sauce according to the macros. It is a very taste way to incorporate fish in to your diet. I use the conversion 200 gm potatoes for 40 gm rice.
