  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stick, finely chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • cups dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp capers
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • red pepper flakes, (or ½ hot red pepper finely chopped) dash
  • 2 lbs whitefish fillets

For Garnish:

  • ¼ cup parsley, fresh, chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon zest, coarsely grated


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a heavy, ovenproof pan, heat the oil. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic, and cook until it is tender.

  2. Add the wine, parsley, basil, seasonings, capers and tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Add the fish fillets, and spoon some of the hot vegetables over them.

  4. Serve the fillets in individual bowls, and spoon a good helping of the tomato mixture into each bowl.

  5. Sprinkle each dish with the fresh parsley and lemon, and serve with some good crusty bread to soak up the tasty juices.
