DIRECTIONS

  • Season the fish fillets with salt, pepper and paprika powder to taste.
  • Put the fillets on the bottom of a rectangular oven-proof dish.
  • Sprinkle fish fillets with the lemon juice.
  • Cut tomatoes into 5 mm thick slices.
  • Cover fish with the tomatoes, making sure that they're covered well (leave no gaps).
  • Heat the olive oil in a small frying pan or pot. Add onion and crushed garlic, stir until onion is translucent.
  • Add capers and chopped parsley, mix well and let the mixture cook for one additional minute.
  • Cover the layer of tomatoes with the herb-onion mixture.
  • Put into preheated oven and let bake for 30 minutes @ 200 degrees Celsius.
  • Variations: it's possible to use other types of fish and/or to replace the parsley with other herbs (dill and tarragon would be obvious alternatives).
  • This is also an excellent barbecue dish; instead of using an oven-proof pan, put one fish fillet with some tomato slices and herb mixture in a "papillotte" of aluminum foil and put this "package" on the grill.
