Sunday Meal: Frank's Kilauea Ginger Fish

Frank's Special Ginger Fish We were introduced to this great recipe by our friend Frank in Kauai a few years ago. He used ahi on that occasion. We have since made it many times using ahi or halibut. The ginger and tomato make for a wonderful, sweet and complex flavor!

Use fresh tomatoes when available

Because this meal takes time to prepare and because it is extra special, I consider it a "Sunday Meal".
