This recipe was demonstrated at a brown bag lunch -- it is so good! This serves 10 but is divided easily to make less or more servings.

The fresh flavours of this dish show off the ingredients so make sure that you don't skimp on quality! I like fish cooked this way but it's very boring looking so the colours of the tomato, cucumber and fresh dill added something to the way that I have made it in the past. Made for the Tasty Testers for ZWT9. Thanks ellie_! :)
