This recipe was passed down to us from our family in Mumbai, where outings to buy fish involved an age-old Victorian covered market and haggling with numerous women dressed in saris and gold jewelry, calling you over to buy fish from their stalls. We first tried this in our original cook- book Adventures, and liked it so much we wanted to refine it further. This is a steamy, moist fish that can be prepared on the stovetop rather than in the oven. - Nilou
