Found this on another recipe site, made it on a whim, and received excellent feedback from the family.

What a tasty dish. I used cod and followed the instructions completely. Definately one I will make again. DH kept coming in and looking at the olives (I used the kalamata) and capers and raised an eyebrow but sure did gobble everything down. He even said lets have this again. Thank you for such a good and easy recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic. Cook about 6 minutes, until softened, stirring so garlic does not burn.
  2. Stir in tomatos, wine, capers, olives, lemon zest and juice, oregano, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil. Add fish and cook, covered, over medium-low heat for about 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily. Gently turn fish halfway through cooking.
