“This quick and delicious recipe is a long-time family favorite,” notes Judy Grebetz from Racine, Wisconsin. “I like to use three or four different-colored peppers for an extra-pretty presentation.” TASTY TIP: If using fresh oregano on this fish, triple the amount, notes Judy Grebetz. “Then serve with couscous or brown rice to round out the meal.”
