This is the great national fish dish of Greece. The fish most commonly used are either bream, grey mullet or red mullet. When bream or grey mullet is used, the fish should be filleted, but the red mullet is left whole. The fish is put in a baking tin with a little oil and water, and 6 finely chopped onions, previously lightly browned in oil, are added, with a few chopped tomatoes, also cooked in oil, 2 cloves of garlic, and a seasoning of salt and pepper. The fish is baked in a moderate oven for 30 to 45 minutes, till quite tender.
