    I love this tangy fish dish. The preparation time includes the marinading of the fish.

      This was delicious and so easy... I poured in some of the lime juice from the marinade to the dish when I added the fish as it seemed a shame to waste it! It added a lovely tangy sweetness (but I used quite sweet, fragrant limes) very much like a Tagine. I think this would also work with pitted, chopped green olives instead of capers, too. Thanks Jan... yum!

      Delicious! I used up some rock fish I had in the freezer. I had everything on hand except fresh coriander (most Californians call it cilantro). I didn't look carefully and thought the recipe called for ground coriander seed. I noticed before adding it, but decided it would be good anyway, so I added about a teaspoon at the same time I added tomatoes. I also added the lime juice that I used for marinating the fish. Yum!
