When I stumbled upon this Baked Fish with Olives and Lemon on Real Simple, I knew I had to try it ASAP because it has everything I like in a recipe. It's made with basic ingredients: white fish, olives, lemon and wine; it's quick and easy: 30 minutes total and very little prep work; and it's healthy. A winner in my book!
I'm in the recipe-testing phase of my eCookbook so let me just say that I've been
devouring tasting a LOT of delicious food lately and a nice light meal was exactly what I needed. I had my fish with a simple salad but I'm sure it would be delicious with roasted asparagus and rice on the side.
Baked Fish with Olives and Lemon
- 4 basa fillets or any other white fish fillets like halibut, cod, tilapia
- ¾ cup dry white wine
- ⅓ cup black olives
- ⅓ cup green olives
- zest from 1 lemon cut into strips
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- kosher salt and pepper
- ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 400F/200C.
Arrange fillets in a baking dish. Pour white wine and scatter olives and lemon zest around the fish. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
Bake for 20 minutes or until fish is cooked.
Remove from the oven. Divide the fish amour individual plates and spoon the sauce and olives over the top. You can serve this dish with roasted asparagus and rice.
