Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 2-Jan small eggplant
  • 1 bell peppers
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil

Instructions

  • Coarsely chop onion, zucchini, eggplant and pepper. Lightly coat a very large frying pan with olive oil and set over medium heat. Add onion. Stir frequently until onion starts to soften, about 3 min. Stir in vegetables, tomatoes, garlic and seasonings. Cover and stir occasionally until vegetables are tender and tomatoes begin to soften and pop, 12 to 15 min.
  • Sprinkle fish with generous pinches of salt and pepper, then place on top of vegetable mixture. Spoon some vegetables overtop. Cover and continue cooking until a knife tip inserted into the thickest part of fish comes out warm, 6 to 8 min, depending on thickness. Spoon vegetables into wide soup or pasta bowls, then place fillets on top.
