  • olive oil
  • 2 onions, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 13 oz can chopped (diced) tomatoes
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 1/4 tsp dry oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 oz panko (about 1/4 cup)
  • Little over a pound of sturdy white fish. I used sole and don't recommend it. The flavor was great, but texture wise it didn't hold up to the sauce and made more of a stew. The original recipe calls for snapper or cod.
  • 3 T chopped parsley
  • 1 T lemon juice


  1. Heat some olive oil in a pan and cook the onion, carrot and celery for about 10 minutes until they start to get tender.
  2. Add garlic and cook for a minute.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano and sugar. Simmer until it starts to thicken. Season as needed.
  4. Arrange the fish in a baking dish.
  5. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice to the sauce.
  6. Pour the sauce over the fish and sprinkle with the panko.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 or until the fish is cooked through.

    I really enjoyed this fish. It was full flavored and light. I would highly recommend adding a healthy sprinkle of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. I'm surprised it's not in the recipe.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation

        Sounds wonderful! I might add some cut green beans too to make it more veggie since I am trying to get my 6 or more veggies a day. Thanks John! Always enjoy reading your postings. Happy Father's Day!
