WHICH HERBS GO WELL WITH FISH

 

I thought that I might share with you a list of what herbs go with what type of fish. I have always found this to be helpful to know just which herbs to use with which fish. I've also included some types of wine and cheese

 

In another few days, I will have a list for meats, game, vegetables and fruits.

 

 

Enjoy!!
