    Olive oil

    ol-iv oyl

    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.

I used skinless fish so didn't need to fry it first. So easy, and we all loved it.

Wow. Have just found a new and delicious recipe. thank you. I used tilapia fillets (which happened to be on offer) and added some asparagus to the dish. Didn't need to fry first as the tilapia was skinless and quite thin. So easy and tasty, Will definitely make again.

Delicious and so easy - I added the basil leaves about a minute before the end so they just started to roast and give off their gorgeous flavour. A definite regular from now on.

Very light & tasty for a dish so easy - did without pine nuts (as didn't have any!) but still good - will try again with next time. Served with new pots & green beans.

Excellent quick & tasty meal, loved the smell of the roasting basil when I opened the oven! Replaced pine nuts with almonds which I had on hand. Used Yellow tail fish (South Africa), served with steamed sweet potato and carrots. Yummies!
