Sicilian Fish with Olives, Capers, and Lemon

Serves 1

10 cloves of garlic, chopped

40g green olives (we used Calabrian), sliced

7 oz white fish (we used catfish), lightly seasoned with cracked pepper & oregano

2 (240g) medium tomatoes, chopped

1 TB capers, drained

2 handfuls (100g) chopped kale, steamed*

Juice of 1/2 lemon

*a quick way to steam kale is to microwave in a covered bowl for 1 minute

1. Spray the pan with PAM and add in the garlic and olives. Saute until golden brown.

2. Remove the olives and garlic from the pan and set aside. Add the seasoned white fish to the pan and allow to cook (3-5 minutes). Once the first side is cooked flip the fish and return the garlic and olives to the pan. Add the capers and tomatoes.

3. Gently stir the tomatoes mixture so as not to damage the filet. Once the tomatoes have started to melt tuck the kale around the fish to finish cooking.

4. Remove the fish from the pan and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Mix all of the vegetables together to combine the flavors well. Garnish with remaining 1/2 lemon, quartered. Top with freshly grated parmesan, if desired.
