      I didn't make the roti... only the sauce. I was looking for a recipe for canned mackerel in tomato sauce. Not much to pick from. I ate this in puffed pita bread and it was OK. I'm not a big fish fan so I was worried after tasting the sauce. But when coupled with the bread the flavor mellowed out some.
