Baked Fish Greek Style

Baked Fish Greek Style

This wonderful baked fish dish from the sunny islands of Greece is fresh and tangy with fresh Olives and Tomatoes. Just because olives are not grown in India does not give you an excuse of not preparing this wonderful dish for your family members... Now a days you get bottled Olives (including Kalamata) in almost all big food stores. Even Feta cheese are available in the cheese section. So go ahead and prepare this easy Baked Fish and enjoy over the lazy weekend lunch.
