Baked White Fish CasseroleLea VaughnThis recipe was given to me by a dear friend, Kay Thistlethwaite when our families lived in Chillicothe, Missouri. Their family ran a landscaping and nursery business, and our family was engaged in running the local radio station. We had many festive get togethers, most featuring food, and this was one of her most requested recipes. The toasted almonds really work very well with the coconut and sherry to give it layers of subtle flavors.
