Just like delicious scallops, MUSHROOM QQ Fish Filaments make delightful seafood treats. These scallop-shaped fish filaments are wonderfully suited to gourmet dishes. In this recipe we dress them in a creamy, homemade hollandaise sauce that takes just minutes to make. The wilted spinach adds a refreshing bite to each mouthful.
