    Hello, I’m interested in making this dish but since I’m new to cooking fish, I was wondering what side dish you’d recommend to pair this with? Thanks for your help!

    There is a (not always followed) tradition in Jewish law, not to eat milk and fish together. No problem with the yogurt, but a soy or other non-milk product would be “more kosher.”

      Hi Leah. Most non-Orthodox Jews have no problem mixing milk and fish, as they consider fish neutral in kosher law. You are correct that some Jewish groups will not mix the two, requiring a mouth rinse between fish and dairy. I don’t weigh the various approaches to kosher law as “more” or “less” kosher– they are just different interpretations. If, in your case, keeping dairy and fish separate is a concern, a non-dairy yogurt or sour cream (such as Tofutti) would be a workable substitute. Enjoy!

    Since we decided to scale down on the red meat, I have to make fish more interesting and appetizing. I have to try mixing yogurt with buttermilk. I love tangy sauces on fish.
    I am actually looking forward to winter now. It has been so hot here as well.

    This looks so easy. For those days when family says “I’m sooooooooo hungry” as soon as I walk in the door. And I like the idea for different sauces. I’ll be trying this soon!
