Baked Porgy

Baked Porgy


Porgy is another of the class of firm white fleshed fish shared by grouper and hake, with a similar mild (non-fishy) taste and that flakes with a fork when properly prepared (meaning don't overcook). Here it's baked with sliced onions, crushed garlic cloves, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, and a drizzle of olive oil, with fresh rosemary as a seasoning agent. The fish will take on the flavors of the other ingredients, which also help to keep it moist during cooking.
