    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This dish is quite simple to make because the fish steams right on top of the simmering vegetables. The most time consuming part, I think, is cutting the oranges into segments. In a pinch, I think a couple cans of mandarin orange slices would work well too. The oranges added just a touch of sweet to the saltiness in the olives and feta. This dish is great served with some steamed basmati rice mixed with some fresh chopped cilantro. I adapted this recipe from Bon Appetit. Originally this was made using halibut, but I've used some of the fishes I mentioned below and those worked just as well.

      This was fabulous. I used green olives instead of black, all wine like you, and ocean perch. The balance of sweet and salty was amazing. The creaminess and tanginess of the feta added a real highlight to the meal. We served this on a bed of spaghetti. Definitely a make again recipe. Thank you for posting the pic, you've really made my week.
