This is a great meal for when you just want something simple, tasty, nutritious and comforting. Its nothing fancy but it sure does hit the right spot. Feel free to play around with the vegetables you use and swap the sweet potato for standard if that is your preference. The fish doesn’t have to be smoked, but trust me, it tastes so much better if it is.
