Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil from the olives in an ovenproof pan. Tip in the onion and stir well, leave to cook for a minute or two and then give it another good stir. Add the tomatoes and some salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then add the olives.
  2. Put the fish, skin side down, onto the sauce and drizzle over a splash more oil from the olive jar. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes until the fish is cooked. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve straight from the pan, with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

loved it really, added garlic, olives, artichoke, courgette and used red onions instead of regular ones, also pre added a big squeeze of lemon right before serving.
Served happy table.
Thanks

This was really tasty. The chilli added a lot of flavour, and the courgettes were good. I added them along with the tomatoes.

I'm gonna be doing this tonight. Can't stand olives, so will be adding courgettes instead, and serving with new potatos and a green salad.
I'm looking forward to it.

We really love this recipe. I did this with monkfisk and another time with Tilapia fisk (very tender). I added the artichokes hearts with the black olive and the combination makes a very tasty and unusual dish. The only black point would then be the price as artichoke jar can be easily £3-4 + the price of a good fish. But still very healthy, very tasty, so easy to do and ideal to prepare in advance. Love it!

I love this simple healthy dish and there are some many possible variations on it. I strongly disagree that it is bland, it has lovely fresh, natural tastes

This dish is a family staple now and I love it - very flavorsome and packed with goodness. Those cooked tomatoes also very good for the man of the house too!

Excellent dish! Very easy to cook. I would have to say next time I cook it I will be adding some garlic and a handful of tiger prawns just to give some extra depth. The chilli flakes are a great addition for anyone who likes it hot.

Pretty bland, even with the addition of the chilli flakes.
