This is a Mediterranean-inspired sauce for snapper or other fish, based on tomatoes, wine, garlic and chillies.


Serves: 4 

  • 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

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. 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.
  2. Add the tomatoes and wine. Reduce heat to low and simmer, breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon as the sauce cooks.
  3. 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. - 21 Jul 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. i reduced the wine down a bit first then added tomatos - 18 Aug 2009


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! - 21 Jul 2008
