This is my easy one-pan fish meal that always, always satisifies - and it’s quick enough to slam together on a worn-out weeknight. Came up with this while vacationing with my brother in Los Cabos - the posada we stayed in had an outdoor kitchen and we spent the afternoon at the mercado, picking up whatever looked nice…and this is what it turned into.
Pescado Senor Manana - serves 2
olive oil for pan
2-3 garlic cloves, sliced
1 medium white onion, sliced
1-2 pasilla chiles, seeded and sliced
2-3 plum tomatoes, diced
couple glugs of dry white wine
salt and pepper to taste
4 tilapia or other white fish filets
cooked white rice to serve
Heat the oil over medium heat and add the garlic, onions and peppers. Saute’ for about 3 minutes, until onions are softened and garlic is fragrant. Add tomatoes, oregano, wine, s & p and bring to a simmer. Lay filets on top of vegetables and cover pan. Cook over medium/low heat for about 5 minutes or until filets are opaque/done. Serve over white rice, muy sabroso.
You can sub out any softer vegetables (zucchini, mushrooms, peas, beans, olives etc) and herbs to switch up the flavor themes. Endless variety.
