This is a slightly alterd recipe from Epicurious. The spicy hot topping makes a nice change for baked fish.

I made this last night, and my husband and I loved it. I cut the salt in half, and used garlic salt rather than regular salt. I also had to substitute a tangelo - there were no tangerines at the store. I served it over rice pilaf, and it is quite simply the best recipe I've found on the site so far.

What a fabulous, simple recipe for fish. I used lemon and lime juice instead of the tangerine and red snapper for the fish, extra cilantro rather than fish herbs. Then I served it in warm tortilla shells as fish tacos - it is brilliant, a must try!

Quite enjoyed this one. I couldn't find diced tomatoes with chillis so added some crushed red pepper flakes. Also used cut up orange pieces as tangerines weren't available. I thought the fruit would be weird but was really a nice addition!
