    What can I use to substitute white wine vinegar and white wine.

    • Raymund says:

      For white wine vinegar you can use cider vinegar but for the white wine I am afraid you cant replace that and get the same flavour, you can try using chicken stock instead.

    Hey!!! We had that not too long ago. My girl loved it!
    They gave the sauce by the side though – did not pour it all over the fish. I did try a but too and yes, it was good.
