Sicilian fish steaks


  • Just seal the seasoned fish on both sides in a thin layer of hot oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Remove.
  • Turn the heat down, add the onion and garlic to the pan, and gently sauté until lightly coloured, regularly stirring.
  • Then add the tomatoes, raisins, pine nuts and capers. Stir and briefly cook.
  • Pour in about ½ cup stock, stir and cook down until the tomatoes collapse a bit.
  • Then return the fish to the pan, baste with the sauce and cook for about 3-4 mins to the desired degree, adding more stock if needed. Remove the fish.
  • Taste the sauce for seasoning and stir through the fresh herbs with more stock if needed.
  • Serve the fish with plenty of the sauce spooned over the top.
