An easy-to-make one-dish recipe, ideal for a winter evening

All you need is a warm loaf of bread to go with this dish. Without it also, it is a balanced dish, the carb being provided by the potatoes. Simple to cook, the recipe keeps intact the flavour of the fish. Add to it the crunchiness of asparagus and you have a great winter meal. Executive Chef of Radisson Blu Hotel New Delhi Paschim Vihar, Subroto Goswami calls it one of his favourite recipes.
