While this sauce is cooking, wash the fish and dry with paper towels. Drizzle olive oil in a 9x13 baking dish. Lay the fish in the baking pan.
Remove the sauce and pour over the fish. Place the baking pan in a 375 F degree pre-heated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Then, raise the temperature to 450 degrees for the next 15 minutes. Fish should come out flaky, moist, and very delicious.

This is one of my father’s favorite recipes. In addition to growing up in a fishing town, my father pursued a career in the merchant marines transporting crude oil all over the world. Growing up in a fishing town, my grandfather had his own fishing vessels and provided a great life for my father and his family, so he was always around boats, fishing, and great seafood; ultimately, no one could cook seafood like he could. It was outstanding and out of this world. Tales from his sea fearing days kept us up late at night as we enjoyed ouzo and seafood mezedes (Greek word for appetizers). Enjoy the Psari Plaki!
