From Clarissa Hyman. This one is a blinder. Add extra paprika for more heat.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Pour into a wide shallow pan and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the fish and turn it over on both sides so it absorbs the sauce. Cover and cook on a low heat for 15 minutes.

This is pretty good! Quickly made and not too spicy. We enjoyed it with rice and steamed vegetables. Thanks for sharing!
