Sephardic Fish in Tomato Sauce

3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil

1 Spanish onion, chopped fine

1 Serrano chile, seeded and chopped fine

1 (28-ounce) can San Marzano tomatoes, chopped (reserve liquid)

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1/4 cup chopped parsley

Juice of one lemon

2 whole red mullets (about 1 1/2 pounds total; may substitute snapper fillets)

Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a sauté pan, and sauté onions and chile until soft. Add tomatoes and half their liquid, herbs and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer. Taste for salt and pepper.

Add fish, cover pan tightly (use foil if necessary) and simmer on low heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Check after several minutes; if tomatoes are dry, add more of the reserved liquid. When fish is done, it should be “tender falling apart.” Serve at room temperature. Makes 4 servings.

    Got olives? Try tapenade at home

    Olive tapenade, an earthy, salty paste of olives, capers, anchovies, garlic and other flavorings, is easy to find jarred in specialty shops. But when you whip up a batch yourself at home, the flavors pop in a surprising way that makes you never want to buy it in a jar again.
