Cod or any meaty fish fillets work well for this braised dish, with the Italian influences of tomatoes, black olives and fresh parsley. Serve over rice.

this was really yummy and a nice way to cook fish for a change instead of crumbing or flouring it. - 21 Jul 2010


Used different ingredients. I used a tin of the Watties Italian tomatos instead of plain - and a bit of salt ∧ pepper to season. Had no rice, so served with penne pasta. - 21 Jul 2010


Used different ingredients. Absolutely delicious and so quick and easy. I used tilapia fillets, chicken stock and kalamata olives. My husband, who isn't a big fan of fish, loved it. - 21 Jul 2008
