  1. i did this modified with a few cut parboiled potatoes and a little olive oil for a covered bake…served over bas-rice with a little really good evo ….i used some pacific rock fish which i chunck-ed small across any grain as it can become tough…..this is really great recipe/method …thanks CJ

  2. Dear Chef John, I'm one of the millions who love seafood but hate cooking it; strange; because I'm a retired cook.
    Your snapper and mayonnaise recipe plus this classic dish has saved my bacon with my seafood loving spouse many times. We have beautiful snapper and many other kinds of fish here in Australian waters and your approach to fish cooking has been a revelation to our fish eating/cooking habits. I'm no longer afraid of fish (and as you know 'they know').You're a wiz! Thank you!

  3. It is really nice to see such a delicious dish prepared in another country. I'm from Mexico, more specifically from Veracruz, and I can say that your oven version looks incredible, practically the same as the traditional one. Congrats!

  4. I think those hipster olives might be called "castelvetrano." We used them at an italian restaurant I worked at as a server. If you happen to find them, hipster-ness aside, they are delicious!

  5. I made this last night with yellow perch. Had the onions, peppers, oregano and tomatoes fresh from the garden & just happened to have a jar of capers on hand. What a fantastic blend of flavor along with those sweet perch fillets. Also easy to make!

  6. Just to let you know I tried this several weeks ago.  Fantastic!  Then I made it again using Alaskan cod, and it was so great.  Today I made it again using Swahi, and none was left.  Great recipe that is versatile enough to use several different types of fish.

  7. FYI: If you consider yourself among the people who are "not good at math" because you can't understand what 60/40 is, you are an officially stupid person. There's nothing wrong with being stupid by the way, except for all the problems it may cause you along the way. After all, somebody has to be stupid or else there would be no smart people.

  8. Made a version with what was in the kitchen, close just sans the jalapeños, kapers and subbed cherry tomato for regular ones. Came out nice but will redo with the ingredients list. I like the VO instead of the talking head BTW. THX!
