My husband and I looooove Brussel sprouts. He actually loves anything cabbage-y.  Our family holidays are never complete without a dish with Brussel sprouts.

Baked Fish with Sour Cream

We are still trying to recover from the holiday eating.  I guess we try to (or purposely) forget our diets from the last few weeks of the year to the first week of the new year. An attempt to eat light was our objective in fixing this dish.
