  2. Stir in a little water and juice of 1 lemon. Place fish into pan without stirring. Baste fish with liquid. Add sugar.
  3. When the fish is cooked, remove from heat. Let cool and serve cold



While making this, I reduced both the puree and the tomatoes by 1/2 and was glad I did. Fish was good, flavorful and very tender (but not too tomato-y). My husband enjoyed it, and he's usually...

This was ok I did not use the permento's did not have them, it came out a little watery but had a good flavor just needed to be thicker, thanks for the recipe

very good, perfect for the summer. I could have stood just a bit more flavor but I am not sure how exactly. A wonderful health addition to anyone's summer menu.
