  • how much oil? I don't see it listed. do you just serve the boiled potatoes on the side with the carrots? mash? - 5/11/11

    Reply from TELERIE (5/11/11)
    I use a tiny amount of oil, just enough to coat so the fish doesn't stick to the pan. I normally serve plain boiled potatoes on the side, along with raw grated carrots. Mash might also work. I sometimes add a dollop of low fat sour cream to the potatoes to taste... I do hope you enjoy it.
