This recipe is for any fish that tastes overly fishy. for example mackerel or bluefish. This recipe takes all the fishiness out of the fish while leaving you with an amazing dish!

It’s easy to do, as with all our recipes, and it takes basic ingredients which you most likely already have in your kitchen. Here’s what it takes:

- 3 TBS olive oil
- diced tomatoes
- chili pepper
- oregano
- salt and pepper
- 2 onions, thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

And that’s it!

First you’ll want to slice up your two onions and your two cloves of garlic. I like to slice them very thin, as they tend to cook up nicer this way. That’s it for the prep!

Next you’ll want to take your three tablespoons of olive oil and add it to your pan. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and lightly fry the onions and garlic for about 2-3 minutes. This way the olive oil can absorb the flavour from the onion and garlic.

Next, take your diced tomatoes and pour them into the pan with the already cooking oil, onions, and garlic mixture. This is where you’ll want to add your salt, pepper, and oregano. Basically what you’re doing is seasoning your tomatoes.

You’ll want to use about a teaspoon of salt and as much black pepper and oregano to taste. If you want, you can add chili pepper to the mix. I like to add that bit of heat.

Now with this mix, we’re going to stir everything together and let it simmer over medium to medium high, for about 10 to 15 minutes, just enough to make sure everything is all cooked together.

After the 10/15 minutes, you can add any type of fish you’d like. I suggest using a fish that is stronger or fishy tasting like mackerel or bluefish. You’ll be amazed how great they taste! Cut your fish fillets into halves and add them to the mix. You can add them whole if you’d like. This works well with whole fillets, half fillets, or even a whole mackerel!

Make sure you mix the fish up with the tomatoes and get everything all simmering together. Cook the fish for about 10 to 15 minutes depending how high you have the heat. You’ll want to keep them simmering.

You’ll know when the mackerel or bluefish is done, when the fish fillets starts to break apart a bit.

The last step, is to enjoy!
