- 1 teaspoon salt (optional)

This was a pretty good dish, but it didn't wow me. I tried to make it exactly as written, the only difference being that the fish I used (cod in my case) came in larger 6-oz portions, so I wound up using about 1.5 lbs. of fish instead of just 1 lb. The spice I used was Penzeys "Jerk - Chicken and Fish", and I opted to chop the onion instead of cutting it into rings. This is certainly a quick and pretty healthy dish. I just guess the jerk seasoning isn't all that impressive here. Still, worth recommending, as it looks nice and is good for you.
