Lemon and Tomato Fish

Italian style fish dish

 

Brighter days means brighter food.  This baked Italian style fish dish not only looks light and refreshing but it tastes so as well.   We used Hake here but you could also use Cod or Coley.  Fresh lemon, plump tomatoes and cous cous which soaks up all the flavours.
