- Song-inducing (it will make you sing!)
Then one evening I visited a friend and in a few minutes, just like magic, she had made some delicious grilled fish. I asked her how she did it and she said she “grilled” right on her gas cooker (stovetop). The thing is I could not even tell the difference between her fish and the “real deal” made on charcoal. This was totally cool so I started making my fish in a skillet or oven tray on the stovetop. Oh man, best decision of ma laif!
