Posted by : Karen Selwyn

Here is another one of Toto Mechali's Sephardic recipes. 

If someone has any personal experience with a recipe like this, would
you please comment on the cooking time and temperature in the recipe
below. One hour cooking time at 375 degrees seems like a lot of cooking
for fish.
