This Veracruz-style fish is very traditional in coastal Mexico cuisine. A fresh fish fillet-- barramundi in this dish-- is cooked on the grill then served with a very rich tomato sauce with herbs, capers, green olives and spices. The fish is typically accompanied by some rice, but Chef Santiago loves to add a little extra oomph with his a seasoned rice mixed with Poblano peppers, corn, and Cotija cheese. Some simply seasoned zucchini and summer squash completes the dish, which happens to be on of Chef Santiago's favorites (and we can see why!)

Nice portion of fish with a good tasty sauce to protein ratio. I would have liked a little bit more vegetable and a little less rice.

I took the skin off (just not my thing) and rubbed the sauce on it before heating it up. It was so delicious
