Brunette grouper Baked

Probably, if Gianluca Cosenza wasn't my fishmonger, I'd eat fish less often than I do. Every day he publishes photos of the catch and sends me a preview of the photos to give me the possibility to choose what to take comfortably. In addition, I must say that he can also advise me and let me try something new. In this case, the proposal of Gianluca, was a cernietta of the Mediterranean just caught and therefore, in order to taste the best taste of his meat, cooked with very few ingredients. I decided to accompany each slice with three condiments that, mixed together, give different textures and flavor that are perfectly matched with the fish. But let's see how to prepare this dish.
