  • Cut the fish into pieces, 1 × 4 in. , and add to the cooking liquid with the vegetable strips and saffron.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes.

    The recipe sounds tasty. However, something about the word "fingers" involved with anything fishy just leads my poor mind in the wrong direction.

    Lovely. I'll even forgive the notion of salmon and turbot having 'fingers'. Some steamed potatoes would hit the spot with this, I think.

    I like that the ingredients let the fish shine through rather than do a cover-up. High 5!
