    This fish recipe can be made outdoors on the barbecue, or you can pan-fry the fish indoors. You'll love the tenderness of the fish combined with this fantastic, taste-bud-awakening sauce, which can be made anywhere from mild to extra spicy to suit your taste. Nearly any whole "white-fleshed" fish can be used for this recipe (here I've chosen rainbow trout, but feel free to substitute whole snapper, sea bream, talapia, gray mullet, or the fish of your choice).
