      First, rub salt and freshly ground pepper into the surface of the fish.
    3. 3
      Add a film of oil to the pan and set over medium high heat.

      This one goes into my cookbook of repeatable fish recipes-it's amazing! I had a couple of small issues with the actual recipe-the ingredients say chopped spinach and the method calls for parsley (I used parsley) and although 4 cloves of garlic are listed in the ingredients, only 1 gets used in the method. I figured none would get much cooking, so minced them all and threw them in at the same time! This recipe is super simple and although the sauce is quite subtle, the whole thing is stunning. I was quite proud to use fish we caught ourselves yesterday, tomatoes and parsley from our garden and my own homemade chicken stock.
