Save and print this recipe on Food52.
Serves 4
3 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, diced
12 oil cured olives, depitted & chopped
1 lb white fish, like striped bass or snapper, cut into chunks
1 tbsp salted capers
Half glass of white wine
4 big, fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 packet linguine or spaghetti
2 tbsp parsley, chopped roughly
Salt & pepper
1. Saute 3 tbsp oil with garlic for 2 minutes over medium heat. Add fish, stirring carefully until browned. Try not to break it up. Add salt & pepper, then white wine & turn up heat. Stir carefully till wine is nearly evaporated, then reduce heat, add tomatoes & cook 10 minutes.
2. Add capers, parsley & olives. When tomato juice is released & sauce is just thickening, turn off heat. You want the tomatoes a little raw.
3. Cook pasta al dente. Carefully add sauce to pasta over low heat. Stir gently & serve. less
