    duonyte's Note:

    I saw beautiful tomatoes in November at the Mexican/Arabic/Polish market and had to use them with the fish I was planning for dinner. I remembered a recipe I had seen while at the dentist's ". This recipe is festive in its appearance and its flavors. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

      I made this dish using talipia fillets. I thinly sliced potatoes & added it to the bottom of the dish before layering the onions & tomatoes. I also added small amount of ginger, cumin, & tumeric to the marinade. (My hubby likes a lot of spice.) Both him & my son devoured the whole pan. Made for Ramadan Tag 2011

      I made one serving and used Swai as my fish...I also used grape tomatoes cut in half...I was really surprised how delicious this was...I love cilantro and lemon...I did cut back on the oil. To prevent the fish from looking so pale I tossed it under the broiler for just a minute or two keeping a close eye on it so as not to have it burn...thanks for posting it..:)

      I so wanted to love this recipe, but I just didn't. My husband said it was okay, so I'll give it 4 stars. The recipe is easy and healthy, which is a plus, but lacked flavor for me. I made as stated and I guess I was thinking the lemon flavor would come out more. Next time, I may try additional lemon juice. Thanks for posting such an easy and healthy recipe.
