Hi, can you please explain if you mean that you should simmer the fish for an hour and then boil it for 5 minutes? Also, should the fish be whole? filleted? with or without skin? When you say to add 'all the other ingredients' do you mean to leave out the bread slices and the olive oil? How big should the orange peel be? should it be fresh or dried? An hour sounds like a long time to simmer sliced potatoes, won't they break down after 1/2 hour or so? Also, won't the onions become burned if they cook for an hour in butter? Thanks for your help.
