This is a Mediterranean-inspired sauce for snapper or other fish, based on tomatoes, wine, garlic and chillies.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tablespoon dried crushed chillies
1 tablespoon capers, finely chopped
400g canned chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup white wine
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 fillets snapper or similar fish
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion, garlic, chillies and capers and cook gently over medium heat until onion is soft.
- Add the tomatoes and wine. Reduce heat to low and simmer, breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon as the sauce cooks.
- Once sauce begins to thicken add the fish fillets and push them down into the pan. Cover and cook over low heat until the fish flakes with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Easy, delicious, didn't need to shop for ingredients, one pan washing up. Everything I look for in a good weekday supper. We've used this with other fish and it works great.

Used different ingredients.
This recipe is brilliant. I make it all the time. One addition... I melt feta cheese into the sauce and then serve the dish over steamed brown rice. YUM!
