I had this dish at the Skull Creek Island Restaurant (since defunct) about 25 years ago and worked it out to this imitation that has served me well through the years.


  1. 1Mix mayonnaise and mustard enough vermouth to make a paste.
  2. 2Place fish in appropriate baking dish and squeeze lemon or lime juice over it.
    seasoning may not be necessary.
  3. 3Mask entire fish with mustard/mayo paste
  4. 4Cover the entire fish with the thinly sliced onions.
  5. 5Lap the lemon/lime slices down the entire center of the fish and sprinkle all over with capers.
  6. 6Dust with paprika and bake in pre heated 350* until the fish flakes. This could take ten minutes or a half an hour depending on the thickness of the fish.
