Baked Fish Recipe From The Spanish Mediterranean

Here's an original baked fish recipe that we first came across in Carihuela Village - the old fishing part of Torremolinos near Malaga on Spain's Costa del Sol. One of the great things about it is that it's a one pot meal, everything is cooked together and the resulting aromas and flavours are really fantastic.
We've used Dorado - Gilthead in English  - the French Dourade and in Italian Orato, but you could equally use Sea Bass - the Spanish Lubina, or any other good firm fleshed fish. A perfect Mediterranean Diet recipe.
