This is a very traditional dish in Puerto Rico. There isn't a restaurant in Puerto Rico that will not have this on, but they literally drown it in olive oil. It is usually served with root vegetables like: yucca (cassava), batata (sweet potato), etc. I love it with any of the root veggies but there's no reason why we can't have it starch free. I packed it with lettuce and broccoli and just the perfect amount of olive oil. I made a side of green bananas for the family.
This is a very versatile fish and I have many recipes coming on this. The saltiness, toasted garlic and vinaigrette flavors just come together so beautifully or as my friend put it, "I put my foot in it!" which means it is really delicious! This is an awesome salad any time of year, especially in the summer. It is a dish that summons up a bit of nostalgia because it was my abuelita's favorite and she was my favorite person in the whole world. Perfect dish for those who are not eating meat on Fridays or any day of the week!
