"Whenever I can't decide on what to do with a piece of fish, I usually opt for this easy and crowd-pleasing technique, which involves roasting seafood after it's been slathered in a highly seasoned vinaigrette. And by crowd, I mean wife. It's baked on top of a warm potato salad."

Cooking time WARNING below!! Excellent flavors. The sherry vinegar makes it - awesomely tangy - delish. I think red wine vinegar could be substituted, but use the sherry if you can. Red/yellow/o...
