Method Prep:20min › Cook:25min › Ready in:45min
Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6.
In a medium frying pan, heat olive oil and sauté onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, capers, black olives, chillies and parsley. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Spread a couple spoonfuls of the sauce in the bottom of an 18x28cm (7x11 in) baking dish, and arrange fillets in a single layer in the dish. Drizzle lemon juice over the fillets, and then pour the remaining sauce over all.
Bake for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets. Baste once with the sauce while baking. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Let me preface my review by saying that i don't eat meat so i didn't actually taste the finished dish. But the sauce was amazing after it simmered. Everyone that ate it though agreed that it was restaurant quality. I made one or two changes. After sauteing the onions and garlic i deglazed with about 100ml of white whine. I also used the entire tin of tomatoes and their liquid. And an extra teaspoon of capers and a pinch more chilli flakes. It was ferociously devoured, so FIVE stars. - 15 Sep 2008
Yes, very good indeed. Not too much chili though - that's not very Med.
Recipes have got very wordy in recent years.

This dish was fabulous!! I used a tin and a half of chopped tomatoes instead of tinned whole tomatoes. I'm new at this seafood thing, and this was the first time I've ever cooked fish. This recipe was so easy and fast, and my boyfriend and I loved it!! I will absolutely make this again, and again, and again, and... - 15 Sep 2008
