  • 8 small cloves garlic
  • 1/2 6 1/2 - ounce jar oil-packed dried tomato halves with herbs (1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 cup pitted mixed green olives
  • 4 5 - 6 - ounces red snapper fillets or other firm-flesh white fish
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Fresh oregano leaves (optional)
  • Pepperoncini (optional)


  1. Peel garlic cloves. With side of wide knife smash garlic. For cooking oil, drain 1 tablespoon oil from dried tomatoes; heat the oil in extra-large skillet. Add tomatoes, olives, and garlic to hot oil. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, until garlic is golden. Use slotted spoon to remove tomato-olive mixture. Reserve oil in skillet to cook fish. Set aside tomato-olive mixture.
  2. Rinse and pat dry fish. Season with salt and pepper. Cook fish, skin side down, in hot oil 4 to 6 minutes for each 1/2 inch thickness of fish or until skin is golden and crisp and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through cooking. Remove skin, if desired.
  3. To serve, top fish with tomato-olive mixture, cheese, and, if desired, fresh oregano and pepperoncini. Makes 4 servings.
