How you cook the fish or the type of fish you use is up to you. This spirited vinaigrette is great on just about anything. I like it with grilled fish and warm flour tortillas. Either warm the vinaigrette slightly or serve at room temperature. When the fish is cooked, spoon some of the vinaigrette over, but don’t drown it.
