Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Heat butter and olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir onions and garlic until onions are tender, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add passata and cherry tomatoes, and bring to a simmer. Stir in green olives and peppers, and season with salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika.
  2. Add fish to sauce and cook over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork. Serve immediately.

Alternatives to cod:

Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
