Posted in response to a recipe request. The original recipe says any firm white fish can be used, and also suggests using hot tortillas to mop up the sauce. Sounds good to me!

The recipe was fine. Very good selection of seasonings. I added 2 (two) tablespoons of light brown sugar to get the sweetness up. I also left the olives whole. Very easy to make
