Ingredients

  • 4 x 120 g fresh or frozen skinless cod, basa, or tilapia fish fillets, 1¼ - 2½ cm (½ - 1") thick
  • ¾ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 410 g can whole peeled, tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or ½ teaspoon dried, crushed
  • 8 oil-cured kalamata olives, pitted and halved, or 8 pitted ripe olives, halved
  • 1 teaspoon capers, drained
  • fresh thyme sprigs, optional

Instructions

  • Thaw fish, if frozen. Clean and rinse the fish fillets, pat dry with paper towels, then set them aside.

For sauce:

  • Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the drained, chopped tomatoes, chopped thyme, olives, and capers. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Meanwhile preheat the broiler:

  • Measure thickness of the fish.
  • Place the fish on the greased unheated rack of a foil-lined broiler pan, tucking under any thin edges.
  • Broil 7½ - 10 cm (3 - 4") from the heat for 4 - 6 minutes per 1¼ cm (½") thickness of fish or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. (To ensure even cooking, turn the fish fillets once if they are about 2½ cm (1") thick).
  • Serve with the sauce and if desired, garnish with fresh thyme sprigs.

Notes

  • For a light lunch, add a few steamed fresh green beans on the side, and if you can a nicely warmed crusty bun. Note that this will alter the nutritional profile.
