The recipe title is quite a mouth-full, isn’t it? We enjoyed this wonderful dish, at a dinner party in Puerto Rico, over 25 years ago. From the first bite, I was completely smitten with the flavor and the texture. It was creamy, salty, all gooey with cheese and truly delicious. It was about the best fish I had ever eaten.
