This is my version of a very popular local dish. Even people who don't like fish enjoy this. If your family doesn't like the fishy taste make sure to cut off pieces with a brown tint to them - that is the fat and it does taste fishy. Can substitute any white mild fish, chicken or even Salmon.

Amazing! So easy to make, I had everything on hand. We loved this dish and wished we had more! Thanks for sharing. I made it as posted, except I scaled down the portions.
I made this recipe using a 400 gram (about 14 oz) package of frozen fish fillets. This package contained only 4 fillets. Admittedly, 14 oz is not quite a pound, but even so, this recipe made an awful lot of sauce for only 4 fillets. I really liked it and would give it 5 stars based on taste, but next time I make it I will cut the sauce recipe in half.
Great as is. Next time I may thin the sauce a little, but overall, fantastic.
