Prep Time: 10 minutes plus overnight soaking

Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 4-6 ounce bluefish filets, can substitute trout, mackerel, red snapper, or sea bass
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup rinsed capers
  • 3 fresh tomatoes, chopped or 1-28 oz can crushed tomato


  1. Soak bluefish in milk overnight to draw the oil out of the fish. After properly soaked, rinse fish and set aside.
  2. Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onions and saut? until translucent. Add the garlic, olives, capers, and tomatoes. Saut? for a few minutes, then add the fish in the pan and bury under the other ingredients so the fish makes contact with the pan. Cook until the fish becomes flaky.
  3. Serve hot.
  1. Optional serving suggestion: Serve over rice
