Romanian Baked Fish with Vegetables

Romanian Baked Fish with Vegetables

 Baked Fish with vegetables is a traditional Romanian recipe for a classic dish of fish pieces cooked with aubergines (eggplants), tomatoes and bell peppers in a tomato-based sauce that's finished by being baked in a foil parcel in the oven. I came across this recipe in the UNICEF India's Canteen. I wrote it down and followed it ditto every time I prepared it. The very same recipe is presented here and I hope you enjoy this classic Romanian version of Baked Fish with Vegetables.
