  • If you don't have broccoli, you can substitute with lightly-cooked cauliflower.
  • Don't like peppers? No worries. Just don't use them. You can add another vegetable of your choice, like peas or asparagus.
  • Any fish will work for this recipe: sea bass, sole, salmon, trout. Go with your favorite.
