Pandora (Fish) With Linguine

Sounds a little crazy, but it's good to try new things. From the Oct. 10, 2008 edition of Athens' Plus Magazine. Pandora is supposedly the tastiest fish from Greek waters. This recipe originally listed "1.5 packets linguine." Well, a greek package of linguine should run about 50g so 1.5 should be about 75 grams. As well, this listed "Half wine glass of olive oil" I'm listing it as a 1/2 c or 112.5 mL based on the conversions given to me by Evelyn/Athens here:http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=220845 Prep time depends on how long one takes to gut the fish.
