***** This was a fabulous method for grilling fish. The sauce of the onion and green pepper with the slight heat of the red pepper flakes was a great addition. I served this with Grilled Zucchini With Cumin (recipe #124611) and Tomato Salad With Lemon and Cilantro (recipe #123712) to make a wonderful summer meal. Thanks for posting. Jul 3, 2005
