On my last visit home my Mom gave me some of her favorite pots so I can venture into a little spanish cooking.  Well, today I tried something new.  I made fried fish with Puerto Rican sauce.  Wow!  Definitely a keeper!

This recipe serves 12.

What you need:

For Sauce:

2 bay leaves

1 tbsp salt

2 tbsp vinegar

2 cans (8 oz each) tomato sauce

1 can (4 oz) pimentos, cut in tiny slices, in their juice

2 tbsp capers

24 olives, stuffed with pimentos

1 1/2 cups of water

2 1/2 lbs onions, peeled, sliced and halved

1/2 cup olive oil

For Fish:

4 lbs of fish slices, 1 inch thick (King Fish is preferred but I used cod)

4 tbsp salt

1/3 tsp pepper

1 cup olive oil

1 large clove of garlic, peeled and crushed

What to do:

Prepare sauce by mixing ingredients in a large sauce pan, cover and cook over moderate heat for 30 minutes.  Then uncover and continue cooking for 30 minutes more.

When sauce is almost done, season fish with salt and pepper.  Brown garlic over moderate heat.  Remove garlic and place in the pan as many slices of fish that will fit.  Cook at moderate heat for 3 minutes on each side, reduce heat to low and cook about 15 minutes.  Cover with sauce and serve.

I like it over jasmine rice.
