    Will Price's Note:

    Saw this dish in a Newspaper Article about travelling in Mexico, It reminded me of a dish I had in Cozumel. It's a simple but different way to cook flounder and similar fish. Easy to make too.

      I loved this! But I do love citrus. I added about 1/4 t of ground mexican oregano, because it makes anything mexican better with it's wonderful smoky flavor. I also added the cilantro right before serving, as I wanted it still fresh. Thanks!

      Used poaching liquid and sauce on 1 pound of fish and it was still too intense for my taste. Dh, however, liked it. Makes a nice presentation but don't let the cilantro lose it's color. If you're used to and enjoy strong lime you'll probably like this.
