Fish with Chorizo, Tomato and Capsicum
A great fish fish that look impressive yet can be whipped up in a flash. The secret lies in using very fresh fish and a great chorizo.
Place flour in a paper bag, add salt and pepper, to your liking, add fish fillets and gently shake to coat.
Heat a non-stick pan, add half the butter and half the olive oil heat until simmers. Add fish (cook in batches if fillets are large) and cook until golden on one side, flip, add the lemon wedges into the pan and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and place on a serving platter.
Place the pan back on the heat and add remaining olive oil to the pan, then add the sliced chorizo and saute for 1-2 minutes, then add sliced capsicum, garlic, and tomatoes, and saute for around 5 minutes, until tomatoes are just starting to collapse. Season to taste, add parsley, and take off heat. Pour tomato sauce over the fish. Serve with your favourite salad and warm, crusty bread.
