Nice when served with saffron couscous (also posted). This colorful entrée is inspired by the Italian vegetable dish peperonata, which includes sweet bell peppers, garlic, and onions. Use a large, two-inch-deep skillet to make sure everything fits. From Cooking Light.

Loved the recipe - I had a small tail piece so it required a bit more steaming. I held off adding the peppers until 3 minutes before the fish was cooked. I used Marsala wine which gave a heavenly flavor to the peppers. Served with Crunchy cabbage & rice
