Ling Medallions With Saffron and Sauteed Potatoes


Catfish or tilapia can be used instead of the ling in this recipe (or other recipes that call for ling). Here the fish is simmered with a fragrant mix that includes onion, bell pepper, saffron, white wine, and bay leaf until cooked through and a sauce has formed. While the fish is cooking, you can boil and then saute the potatoes that are served alongside. Round out the meal with a watercress salad.
