Fish with Potatoes and Capers


Simple can be delicious as you can see with this Fish with Potatoes and Capers in an olive oil and lemon juice sauce. It is elegant, gluten-free, dairy-free, healthy, and best of all goes well with a lovely white wine! Thought that may get your attention...


Helpful Tips

Fish

I have used Bream fillets but any white fish that can be baked will do. I would suggest trying it with cod or even snapper fillets. Just be aware that the baking time may be longer if the fillets are thicker.


Vegetables

You will have to pre boil the potatoes for 5 minutes to reduce the baking time so the fish does not overcook. If you prefer to swap the potatoes with a green vegetable then there will be no need for this step. I would suggest broccolini, capsicum strips, yellow or green squash and even kale would go nicely.


Capers or Olives

Green olives are a wonderful substitute for capers.


Seasoning

Please do not skimp on the seasoning. Fish always needs to be seasoned well. When you think you have added enough, just sprinkle that little bit more.


What to serve it with?

I have often cooked this without the potatoes and instead steamed some rice and served the fish with rice or even quinoa. It is absolutely delicious and pairs perfectly with any gluten-free grain..
