Fish in Eggplant Bolognese Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Jamilahs_Kitchen

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.
