Fish in Garlic Sauce – Pescado al Mojo de Ajo is a superb recipe that has a hit of garlic without blowing your mind. Surprisingly, the flavour is present but incredibly subtle. This way it does not overpower the fish. Whilst this main dish recipe says bass or catfish, I must admit, I use haddock often and it works perfectly. The fish is strong enough to carry the flavours. This Mexican dish goes so well with a traditionally British recipe, Mashed Potato. The sauce mixes with the potato incredibly well and creates an additional texture. This is a hearty meal for everyone.
