This recipe works well with several white fish. When purchasing fish, consider the following.

Buy fish from sustainable sources. We often refer to 'Good Fish's' ( guide to help with this selection in Australia.

Buy as fresh as possible: If you have a local fish monger, ask them when they get their fish deliveries and try to shop on those days. The general rule is that raw fish will last 2 days if stored properly in the fridge.

Smell it: Yes, you heard that right. It should smell like the sea.

If it smells really fishy or like ammonia, skip it.

Fillets: Should be shiny, moist and plump. Stay away from fish that looks dull, dry or is starting to separate.


Step 01

Heat oil in our 28cm pan over medium heat. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Sear the fish until golden brown on one side (about 2 minutes). Carefully flip the fillets over.

Step 02

In the same pan add in the onion and garlic, and fry until fragrant (about 2 minutes).

Step 03

Add in the tinned tomatoes (gently squash them with your fingertips while adding them into the pan), wine, lemon juice, capers, seeded mustard and olives, and continue cooking until the fish has cooked through and sauce has reduced a little. Taste test and adjust seasoning accordingly with salt, pepper and lemon juice.

Step 04

Pour the sauce over the fish and serve immediately with the herbs.
