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.
