*A mild tasting, flaky white fish, cod is a delightful choice for this recipe. (It also tends to be wild-caught and on the less expensive side.) Other good choices include halibut, tilapia, red snapper, monkfish and sea bass.
**If you aren’t a regular wine drinker or simply prefer not to open a bottle for the half cup called for in this recipe, consider purchasing a 4-pack of mini bottles, which contain 6 ounces each, to have on hand. (Just make sure you like the taste of whatever you use!) Optionally, you may use chicken broth instead of wine. In this case, I also add 2 teaspoons of white wine vinegar (could try lemon juice) to mimic the touch of acidity in the wine.
**For an inexpensive mini-bottle option, I like Sutter Homes Pinot Grigio. Chardonnay would work well for those who enjoy that flavor.
