Baked Fish Greek-Style

The last time I prepared this dish was before my daughter was born ~ yikes, it's been to long!  The fresh ingredients come together to create a traditional Greek dish that so light and flavorful.  With so many folks looking for healthy recipe options, I thought is was the perfect time to share this dish.

"Melt in your mouth medley of flavors."

4-6 fish fillets, (halibut, cod, mahi mahi or your favorite white fish)
Salt and pepper
2 lemons
2 Tbs. olive oil
3 medium onions, halved and sliced
4 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
1 can chopped tomatoes
4-6 fresh tomatoes, cored and chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

1.   Place fish in a glass baking dish.  Season with salt and pepper.

2.   Cut one lemon in half and slice one of the halves into thin slices for garnish.

3.   Squeeze the fresh lemon juice from the remaining half and the other whole lemon over the fish. (Take care not to let the seeds in the dish.)

4.   In a large skillet, saute the onions in olive oil until they soften; 8-10 minutes.

5.   Add the garlic and saute for about a minute longer.

6.   Add the canned and fresh tomatoes, stir.

7.   Sprinkle parsley, paprika and cinnamon over the mixture, stir.

8.   Pour white wine into the skillet and bring mixture to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes.  Stir occasionally.

9.   Pour skillet mixture over the fish.  Be sure each fillet is covered.

10. Bake for 15-20 minutes; until fish is opaque.

11. Serve and enjoy!
