This recipe makes a lovely thick sauce perfect in my opinion for most varieties of white, non-oily fish. We like it for its slightly sweet taste which is different from most other tomato-based sauces that generally end up tasting like spaghetti sauce. It's also a pretty healthy recipe, I think.

I used haddock for this lovelty dish and discovered I had no vermouth, so used a dry white wine as a substitute. Made only one pound of fish, but used the entire recipe for the sauce except decreased the wine a tad and added a little water instead to make the 1/3 cup of liquid. Used the oven method and the dish was done in exactly 12 minutes.Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
