Recipe by Barefoot Beachcomber

Adopted Recipe! This is very good, I made no changes to the recipe. And the sauce is key and very good!

This is safe and easy - you won't go wrong with this if you like fish. I used a whole white pomfret (about 1kg) and added a pinch of rosemary as well. In fact I didn't even prepare the sauce, and it still tasted good.
