I am still on the mission to force health eating upon people, along with becoming more ethnically diverse, so I decided to try my hand at another Cuban dish. This time, I simply found a dish that was relatively healthy to begin with rather than editing a less healthy dish.
The recipe was for Cuban Sea Bass. However, when I go to the grocery store, I was unable to find sea bass, so I decided to settle for tilapia.
Cuban Tilapia (or whatever other fish you decide to stick in it)
2 tb olive oil
2 white onions, sliced
1-2 cloves minced garlic
4 chopped tomatoes, seeded
1.5 cups dry white wine
1/2 cup slices olives
1/4 cup drained capers
crushed red pepper
~ 1 pound of fish
1 tb butter
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
- heat olive oil in a pan/ wok and cook onions and garlic.
- Add tomatoes, cook until soft.
- Add wine, olives, capers, and red pepper. Allow sauce to simmer.
- Add fish to sauce. Cook 10-15 minutes until fish is easily flaked.
- Remove the fish from the sauce.
- Add butter to sauce and turn up the heat. Add cilantro. Cover sauce, and allow to thicken.
- Serve sauce over the fish.
I served my dish with fresh steamed green beans, black beans, and a brown rice/rice pilaf concoction.
It came out pretty good in my opinion. I am not a huge fan of olives, so if I did it again, I think I would omit them, but overall tasty.
