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.

Really tasty, and extremely easy and quick. I thought the olives were a bit overpowering, so would halve those next time. Also added a couple of anchovy fillets and 2Tbsp capers, which worked really well. Will try variations with artichokes, garlic and chilli next time.
Served with crusty olive bread to mop up the sauce.

Very easy to make. I added garlic, mixed herbs and a second tin of tomatoes. I also added some new potatoes when serving and it is delicious. I love the olives with the fish and didn't find it bland at all. I guess it depends on your taste. Used coley fish too which was the cheapest at the time.

Bland even with Chilli flakes, the olives don't compliment white fish. It doesn't really work.

I add a pinch of thyme to this and it's delicious. This is one of our favourite mid-week dinners as it's easy and really tasty.

Lovely warm healthy and tasty!

A the last minute I turned the fish over and grilled the skin with a squeeze of lemon, love grilled fish skin!

Followed the guidance of some of the commenters and added capers and garlic, and also added the artichoke hearts - really made the difference having that tanginess. Served with new potatoes and green beans and will definitely be making this again!

I took this as a basic recipe so I added some chilli flakes as suggested, garlic, tarragon, and a can of butter beans. Instead of putting it in the oven I put the lid on steamed the fish then removed the lid for the last 10 minutes - it was delicious!!!

Loved this dsh, added a garlic clove to the onions and tore fresh basil over it before serving. It looks great. Would probably use a bit more fish next time though.

I added chilli flakes, two garlic cloves, a teaspoon for tomato puree and replaced the parsley with mixed herbs. The result was a much more richer, flavoursome dish. Fantastic!

was ok, but added garlic to the onions. next time would add anchovies to the tomatoes or a few chunks of spicy chorritzo sausage to create a richer flavour.

This was yummy, but it definitely needed a few additions. I added garlic with the onion, zucchini with the olives and stirred through fresh basil at the end. Fresh lemon and a drizzle of olive oil over the fish before serving too. Served with mash and a side salad. Very tasty and looked beautiful in the pot.
