Cleverly simple, this recipe can use any meaty white fish; perhaps cod, pollock, or even catfish. You need a meaty fish in order to stand up to the strong chorizo. Since the dish is technically simple, it’s important to get good quality ingredients and execute technique perfectly. As with any seafood dish, freshness of the fish is paramount, there should be absolutely no compromise on this! The vibrancy of the tomatoes and basil is equally as important. This is a marriage that needs no introduction. The chorizo will lend its delicious spicy juices to the dish. When you lift the foil at the end you will be hit with a gorgeous fragrance that compels you to indulge! I guarantee it.
