"Pickeral is a mild flavoured fish that has a lovely texture. I put this recipe together and was quite pleased with the result. Note the Worchesteshire sauce is the "thick" sauce not the usual thin type. Do not overcook the fish You may use other fish like catfish, sole, tilapia in place of the pickeral."
