Fast Italian fish dinner recipe. Use any firm white fish--tilapia, cod, halibut etc. If you don't like olive oil, you can reduce the amount. This is meant to be a eaten with bread dipped into the sauce like a Mediterranean dish.

This is an excellent recipe. Brilliant flavors that pair beautifully make a meal thats worthy of company. Very easy to put together but let the friends and family think that you worked for hours to achieve the rich flavor depth. I used Basa in this and every bite was enjoyed. Made for ZWT 7.

This recipe is awesome. The flavors do pair beautifully together, and it's so easy to make. I found it by googling fish and eggplant, and I'm so glad I did. I made it last week and my husband asked for it again this week. The great thing about it is that it's super healthy as well.
