Portuguese-Style Baked Fish

Recipe by Transylmania

My mom makes this and its also very common in the Portuguese restaurants of SE New England. This is fantastic with spaghetti and even better with roasted potatoes.

This was a nice combination of flavors and textures, but a big downside that I encountered is that the lemon skin bitters the entire dish. The slices of lemon look very nice on top of the fish, but they sure leave a bitter aftertaste. I will make this again, but this time I'll skin the lemons.
