The name of this baked fish recipe tells you where it originates from. The literal translation is fish in the style of Spetsai or Spetses, which is a small island in the Argo Saronic Gulf, south of Athens.
A delightful little island, with charming villages, it is a great place to see how life on the islands is like - although it does get very busy in the summer with the Athenians escaping the capital city for a weekend island break.
