  • STEP 1

    In a frying pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil over a low-medium heat. Add the shallot and a pinch of salt, then cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 mins until softened and the edges begin to brown. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 min, then add the bay leaf, tomatoes, vinegar and seasoning. Stir well, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 mins.

  • STEP 2

    After the sauce has been simmering for 7 mins, heat the remaining oil with the butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Season the fish well and place, skin-side down, in the pan. Cook for 4 mins – try not to move the fish so the skin gets evenly coloured. Flip over and continue to cook for 2 mins or until the flesh begins to flake in large chunks.

  • STEP 3

    Season the sauce to taste, then spoon some onto each plate and top with a fillet. Scatter over the olives and the basil, then drizzle over the extra virgin olive oil to serve.
