A good friend gave me this recipe when she told me my picky then 13 yr old ate it up. His early years in Jamaica gave him a very difficult palate to please when it comes to fish. You can adjust the jalapeno to taste or eliminate it all together. Debbie (Keenan) says this works well for chicken too. I hope you enjoy!
