Crisp Skinned Barramundi with Peperonata Agrodolce

A Recipe from The Feast Goes On

This recipe is a lovely combination of capsicum (peppers), onion with salty capers, sweet raisins with a slightly acidic dressing. It goes well as part of an anti pasto plate or as a simple entree (appetizer) on some well toasted sourdough bread.

The recipe comes to us from Harold Finger who has been making this for many years.
