    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 500g cherry tomatoes
  • 50g black olive
  • 25g pine nut
  • large handful of fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to fan 180C/ conventional 200C/gas 6. Take the fish fillets with the skin on, and season with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and cook the fillets skin side down for 2-3 minutes until just crisp. Transfer to a large roasting tin, skin side down.

  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and scatter around the fillets. Cut the olives in half and scatter over the tomatoes, followed by the pine nuts. Season.

  3. Put the tray in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the fish is tender. Remove from the oven and scatter the tomatoes with a the basil leaves. Spoon onto four warm plates and top each with fish. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.

Easy dish to make and healthy. Good for a midweek meal but not too exciting.

Easy and quick to prepare and we both enjoyed it. May cook this again.

The kids love this served with rice and green beans. My 7 year old cooks most of it and puts in extra olives as all 3 children love them

This was easy but didn't taste of much. I used skinless river cobbler. We don't like olives so I thought it would be nice to add some green veg such as green beans or broccoli.

Very quick & easy. I ate it with some rice and it was a really tasty dinner. Great if your watching what you eat.

This was okay but I found it a little tasteless, I think it would be fairly low in calories and quite healthy, it was simple to make and it didn't involve a lot of ingredients - might make it again and add something to it.

I see most people loved this so I'm guessing it must have been the fish I used, but this came out awful. We couldn't finish it and will be binning the leftovers. I'm working with fish available in Australia and went with Nile Perch which was my downfall. The fish wasn't firm at all and tasted way too 'fishy' which didn't work with the Mediterranean flavours at all. I imagined this would be lovely, so I might give it a tentative go another time with different fish, but this attempt has left a really bad taste in my mouth.

So quick and easy not to mention tasty for such few ingredients. Used skinless cod to cut down on cooking process, ready within 15 mins. Not keen on olives so removed and used lemon juice, mixed herbs on bed of puy lentils.

What would be the calorie count of this?
