This fish is good served with rice pilaf and green vegetables. Other small firm fish such as sole also works well in this recipe. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (December 1981)

Very good, Cut recipe down for 2, I baked this on one large plate as my plates are not oven proof. The cilantro, parsley and mint with the lemon gives this a very nice flavor. Thank you Ellie for the recipe.
