Mediterranean Amber Jack Fish

We are a part of a CSF (Community Supported Fishery) in Charleston named Abundant Seafood.  We pay a set price at the beginning of the season and pick up a choice of whatever fish they brought in from their catch.  The fish in this recipe is amberjack.  If you can’t find that, any white flaky fish while work (cod, grouper, tilefish) will work for this recipe.
