Very simple, yet tasty, dish! The ingredients didn't list raisins and so I left them out. I used Redfish (not sure if it is the same?). My DH loves tomato dishes and he really enjoyed this alot, and so did I!
DH and I liked this dish. It was easy to prepare. We halved the sauce to accommodate about a pound of fish, with good results. We didn't add the raisins as we did not know how much to use. Otherwise, we made no modifications to the ingredients. I especially enjoyed the slivered almonds on top of the fish. They lent a nice flavor to the dish. I think the fish needed something, so I tried putting some feta on top, but this did not quite do the trick. We served the fish with a side of roasted asparagus. Thanks, Chia.
