Fish & Seafood

Flounder with Grapes, Raisins & Marsala Wine

The inspiration for this recipe came from South African cuisine, where they tent to marry fish with fruit a lot. The sweetness of the fruit is offset by sharpness of the balsamic vinegar. This is a really light, well-balanced dish, which tastes particularly fine when served with an arugula salad.
