This was an amazing recipe! I definitly reccomend buying fresh halibut. And use half fresh, half canned tomatoes, and never garlic powder! Just crushed garlic.

I used kalamata olives, which overpowered the dish for us. Might be better with plain black olives (or no olives at all... after picking out the olives, the tomato sauce was delicious with the fish).

good way to dress up even an inexpensive whiting fish and a cheap chardonnay. Did not use powders, but the real deal; onion and garlic sauteed in a little EVOO. Used nicoise olives and added some herbs de provence along with the others. Sprinkled the fish w/Old Bay, S&P before baking. Served over couscous. Could easily sub capers for the olives, or slice up some fennel bulb to saute along with the onions/garlic for an additional mediterranean flavor. Quick, easy, and tasty.

Absolutely fabulous, light and delicious. I made it for my husband and his cousin (who are not fish lovers) and they even had seconds. It reminds me of a seafood dish made at a local Italian restaurant but they don't have olives in it. The minor adjustment I made to the recipe was salt the sauce.

Delicious, Quick & Easy! I didn't have olives handy, so I used 2 tablespoons of capers. Used Flounder for fish and had to cook 5-10 minutes longer. This recipe is definitely a keeper - served over mashed potatoes and my husband and I loved it. I'll have to try it with the next type of fish he catches.

This was a great recipe! It was quick, easy and tasted delicious. I serve it with brown rice and salad. It was a hit with my family!!!

This recipe was pretty good. Something different than what I am used to. I've added it to my recipe box. I used fresh garlic and sauteed it with the onions in the first part of the recipe. I also added a pinch of sugar to the tomato sauce to cut the acidity. I omitted the olives since I did not have any on hand, it turned out really good. Thank you for the recipe I will use it again.

Ready in no time, healthy and yummy! My boyfriend, who is usually quite neutral to fish, loved this. A definite keeper but you need more seasoning (garlic is great to add flavour to the sauce).
