Mackerel or Sardines in Creole Sauce

Mackerel or Sardines in Creole Sauce

This dish only needs some rice on the side to make a complete meal, but it's enhanced and complemented by a mixed green salad.

To make a great salad dressing, combine one part Vital Choice Organic Balsamic Vinegar with two parts Vital Choice Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and season the resulting blend with Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade mix.
