Expert Tips

Children can help measure the basil, tomatoes, salt, garlic powder, wine and lemon juice, and then help top the fish fillets.

Buy fresh fish from a fish counter that doesn't smell "fishy" or like ammonia, and where fish are displayed on pans set into ice rather that directly on the ice.
