I am not big on seafood, but I must admit I really enjoyed this fish. I was in an adventurous mood one day whilst at the local fresh meat and fish market and thus decided to try this fish (mainly because it wasn't too expensive and was already prepared to cook!). Anyways, I found a recipe, made my own adjustments to it and came up with a dish me and my boyfriend really really enjoyed. The flavors are great and the fish is very tasty.
