This recipe was an entrant in the very first Gilroy Garlic Festival in 1979. This annual festival includes a cooking contest, which has been the basis for several best-selling cookbooks. The original recipe calls for whole fish, but I just use enough fillets to suit my needs. Use your preferred firm fish. I used Tilapia. Beyond simple to prepare, this is a truly delicious dish, and the aroma while cooking will knock your socks off!
