My grandfather was a fisherman and fish is something that my family eats often. This is a very common dish in the town my mom is from on the Amalfi Coast. It is a simple and quick dish that come together in 15 mins and is so delicious! Make sure you have a nice piece of bread to soak up all that sauce.
