White Fish In Lemon Dill Sauce

       After a beautiful day celebrating our fourth year anniversary in Cornucopia, Wisconsin( Which is a little Lake Superior beach town in Northwestern Wisconsin). Mark and I visited a couple of shops that were on the dock, and as we rounded a corner, we discovered Halvorson’s Fisheries. Once you enter the shop, your able to see the employee’s cut and score the fish that had just been caught before we came in. We bought four white fish fillets and a few other fish snacks, most people go out for dinner on their anniversary, but we like to cook at home and what better way of showing love for each other is by cooking together and this is our ” White Fish In Lemon Sauce”.

Here is our recipe in case you want a easy recipe to make or its even better when you make it with the love of your life.
