Notes

This is recipe altered from a cookbook about Frida Kahlo and the parties she made. I used fillets instead of a whole fish and sauted the onions before baking. It's very tasty and very forgiving. Also if you are counting calories which even I do occasionally you can substitute half of the olive oil with tomato sauce. My husband likes cutting it with wine which is the recipe I have included below.

A dash of local for every season
