The night before,

1)defrost the fish and soak overnite in a pan with lemon juice and salt on it. try to turn over. This process gets the "fishy" taste out. i doubted it but it worked. it could also work with whiting fish.

2)Roast the peppers. Cut them in ½, take out seeds, broil on high. when they look like they are done, you can leave them overnite in the oven. some people put them in a plastic bag. Peel the skin off and the taste is very sweet.

3)Fry the onions and add the basil. Make sure they are really fried. slice up the peppers into strips and add to the frying onions. Fry a little longer and add the can of crushed tomatoes. Let it saute for a while.

4)Rinse off the fish. Put into a baking pan and pour the sauce over the fish. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for no 45 minutes to 1 hour. No longer than 1 hour.
