seared fish with olives and tomatoes


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 x 400 grams whole cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of capers
  • 2 sprigs basil
  • 500 grams white fish (approximately 4 fish)
  • ½ cup parsley chopped

Notes from Rouba

  • It’s important not to overcook the fish.
  • Capers are optional. If you decide to add them, remember they are naturally salty.


Step 1.

In a saucepan large enough to hold the fish fillets, add the olive oil, capers, and garlic and sauté them. Add tomatoes and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer on low heat for approximately 7-10 minutes or until the sauce slightly reduces.

Step 2.

Add the fish, cover with a lid, and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Turn the fish over and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the fish is opaque in the centre and cooked through. Garnish with chopped parsley.
