Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"This is certainly the most renowned dish of the gulfside port of Veracruz. The flavors of capers, wine and olives are very European, a reflection of the Spanish influence on this region."

This is great and easy. I recommend not adding the tomato sauce - makes it too soupy. Adding some corn works well.

I fixed this for friends and they thought that it was one of the best things that they have ever eaten. Very simple to make and a vegetarian delight. Can be made as spicy as you like, or as mi...

Great tast. Just like the resturants in Veracruz.

This is delicious and very easy to make. It even transfers well as a recipe for non-fish dishes such as pasta or tofu dishes.

Awesome recipe-low fat and high in flavor. Be careful about using salsa that is too spicy-you won't be able to enjoy the flavors to their fullest.

Great!
