One of our favorite meals. It is low in calories, can be a whole meal alone, or served with crusty bread and a salad.It is easy to prepare and the sauce really compliments the fish. Enjoy!

Great taste, a winner for Carole. My husband (not a fish lover) said it was very good and to keep the recipe. I did not have zucchini on hand, so I just sauteed some onions with the garlic, and it worked fine. We served it with whole grain, low fat pasta primavera. Terrific, healthy meal.
This is a GREAT recipe. I served it over a bed of white rice and it was smashing!
Excellant fish recipe, very tasty! I used halibut steaks, the topping was delicious, we loved the combination of capers, black olives, tomatoes, garlic and sweet pepper. I had to use celery for under the fish as I had no zucchini , it worked fine. The parmesan cheese on top was the perfect finish! Just made half a recipe for the two of us, we enjoyed it very much and i will make it again. Thanks for posting.
