Cod puttanesca

Prep 10 min
Total 25 min
Serves 4



2 tbsp
olive oil, divided
small onion, diced
garlic cloves, sliced
4 cups
multi-coloured cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp
1/2 cup
chopped basil, plus more for garnish (optional)
3/4 tsp
salt, divided
halibut or cod fillets, (450g)


  • HEAT 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add onion and cook until almost softened, 3 min. Add garlic and cook 2 min. Stir in tomatoes, capers, basil and 1/4 tsp of the salt. Cook until tomatoes start to soften, about 3 min. Remove to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
  • WIPE pan clean. Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in pan over medium-high. Pat fish dry with paper towel and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 tsp salt. Add fish to hot pan and cook until golden, flipping halfway, 5 to 7 min. Return tomatoes and heat until warmed through.
  • SPRINKLE with more chopped basil, if desired, and serve over quinoa or rice. Kitchen Tip: If you don’t have cherry tomatoes on hand, this recipe works with canned, drained, diced tomatoes as well.
