The sauce is delish, and as long as you have enough olives to get a bite with every piece of fish, no other seasoning is needed. But is you skimp on the olive, add a bit of salt to the fish. I also increased the garlic. If you like things spicier, add a bit of cayenne to the fish before topping with breadcrumbs. Quick and easy recipe. Delicious dinner tonight.
