A favorite style of cooking fresh white fish of Isabel Allende. Can be used with any white fish.

Top Review by Cluich

Three stars for the recipe overall, but a bonus star for the bed of Vidalia onion slices. Not only does the onion impart a nice flavor to the fish, but it also serves as a sort of baking rack, keeping the fish out of the olive oil at the bottom of the dish.
