Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup onion -- chopped
1/2 cup green pepper -- chopped
2 large cloves garlic -- minced
1 cup medium tomato salsa
1/2 cup water
1 3/8 cups black olives
1 tsp. Greek herb seasoning blend -- ** see note
1 1/2 lb. fresh fish fillets – pref. thick fillets
1/4 cup feta cheese -- crumbled
1 tbsp. parsley -- plus
1 tbsp. fresh marjoram -- chopped

Preheat oven to 425F.

Heat 1/2 tsp. oil in a nonstick 2 qt. saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, green pepper and garlic and saute until tender, 3 minutes. Add salsa, water, olives, and Greek seasoning blend. Simmer for 5 minutes until thickened slightly. Set aside.

Heat remaining tsp. oil in a nonstick skillet with oven-safe handle over medium-high heat. Add fish fillets (if skin is on, place flesh side down). Cook 1 minute and flip. Spoon sauce over fish, then place skillet in oven and bake 2 minutes.

Remove from oven, sprinkle with feta cheese, and return to oven. Bake for 1 minute more or until fish is barely opaque and slightly flakey. Sprinkle with parsley.

** If you don't have a greek seasoning blend, mix together some oregano, thyme and a little bit of dried rosemary. Use only a little rosemary because it can be very overpowering when there is too much.

If your skillet is not an over-proof skillet, wrap handle with some heavy duty tin foil.
