Recipe by Alan Leonetti

This is a recipe that my father used to make for the two of us many years ago. My mother would make something different for my brother & herself. Trust me, this is a GREAT TASTING RECIPE!

Great dish! I did it exactly like the recipe said other than using cilantro rather than parsley because I thought it would go better with the side of pico de gallo I made to go with it. It came out perfectly and I am very pleased because it was a very cheap meal for fish, only about %u20AC2.50 for about a pound of fish.
