Ingredients

  • 4 6 ounces cod fillet
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 28 ounces can crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt divided
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper divided
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ cup black olives pitted
  • 2 tablespoons capers drained

Instructions

  • Pat the cod dry with a paper towel, and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper on both sides; set aside.
  • In a large heavy skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook until soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Pour the crushed or diced tomatoes, season with the remaining salt and pepper along with oregano and crushed red pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce for 10 minutes.
  • Add the capers and olives to the tomato broth. Carefully nestle the seasoned pieces of cod into the sauce without covering the fish with the sauce. Cover with a tight-fitting lid or foil until the fish is cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve on its own or with quinoa, pasta, rice or potatoes to soak up the sauce.
