Fish cooked this way will keep for several days. No reheating is necessary. Just take out of the fridge a couple of hours before serving and enjoy at room temperature. With this recipe you can use almost any kind of fish, including the less expensive but tasty like macherel or sardine and the piquant sauce will improve the flavor. Kali Orexi! Enjoy!
