Baked Fish in Garlic Vinegar Sauce

J. White Harris


This will startle anyone who claims they don’t like fish. The Garlic Vinegar Sauce takes this dish to a whole new level, it is absolutely delicious. Some who claim not to like fish as well as some who say they don't like vinegar find this dish delicious. My wife, who says she doesn't like vinegar, loves this so much that she took some extra sauce and put it on some left-over catfish and loved how it tasted. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

  3. Prepare the sauce as follows: Blend the olive oil, white vinegar, garlic, oregano, mustard, parsley, coriander, lemon juice, and wine.
  4. Pour the sauce over the fish, and bake the fish, uncovered, in a 350° oven for about 45 minutes.
