Middle Eastern Fish or Salmon With Peppers and Tomatoes

This dish always comes out delicious, even with changes to the ingredients. I have made it with salmon, halibut, red snapper, swordfish and tilapia. You can control the heat by the amount of hot pepper you use. If you don't have a jalapeno on hand, substitute 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper ( I usually use both in this recipe). If you don't have za'atar spice blend, use 1/4 tsp thyme, 1/4 tsp marjoram, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp roasted sesame seeds and 1 tsp sumac for this recipe. This looks as good as it tastes!

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In large saute pan or skillet, saute the onions, red bell peppers, green bell peppers and jalapeno in olive oil for about 5 minutes on med heat. Don't let them color.
  • Add garlic, stir and cook 1 minute.
  • Add tomatoes, broken up by hand, with all the juice from the can. Add 1/2 cup water.
  • Add everything else except the fish. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes. Taste and correct seasoning if necessary.
  • Put 1/3 of the tomato mixture in a 9x13 roasting dish (Spray with non-stick spray first).
  • Arrange fish on tomato mixture.
  • Spread the rest of the hot tomato mixture over the fish.
  • Bake until fish is just done, about 10-15 minutes, depending upon the thickness of your fish - check it after 5 minutes or so to see how it's doing.
