      I made this today, halving the recipe and using two small pieces of red snapper. I thought the flavor of the sauce was very complementary to that of this fish. I'll be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      This didn't work out as I expected, but I also didn't follow the directions - I found some flounder (very cheap) and the fish basically fell apart in the pan when cooked with the pepper/onion mixture. We served it over rice. Next time I should try a firmer fish, such as the ones suggested.

      Very easy. For the fish I used catfish fillets and when serving, I garnished with freshly snipped cilantro. Thanks Barb for posting.
