Anna Sultana's Baked Stuffed Lampuki - Baked Fish, Maltese Style

Since it's the Lampuki Season 
- at least it's the Lampuki Season in Malta - 
I thought I'd mention another lampuki recipe.
This is a baked fish recipe.
So, yes, it is a little healthier than a fried fish recipe.

If you can't find lampuki, substitute another dense fish.
Ma used bluefish and haddock.
I've used this recipe with salmon, too.

Hints:

You can place 3 strings on the potatoes before you place the fish on top.
After filling the fish, tie it together.
Or not.

The anchovies and olives are salty.
So if that's enough salt for you, don't add more.

The baking time depends on the thickness of the fish.
If you got a particularly thick section, go long.
If you didn't, don't.
