  15. Made a version of this tonight. Delicious. Had a bag of hash browns which I put on the sheet and roasted for 30 mins. Then laid fish on top and roasted 30 minutes. Fish stuffed with capers, sun dried cherry tomatoes and lemon slices. R ally good. Served with sautéed asparagus with sweetly drop peppers.
