1 cup finely chopped tomato
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pitted olives (about 6 olives)
1 tablespoon capers, drained
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
Cooking spray
4 (6-ounce) trout fillets
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.

3. Line a baking sheet with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Place fish, skin side down, on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with parsley, salt, and pepper. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with olive mixture.

I modified the recipe by adding the olive mixture to the fish for the last 2-3 minutes of the cooking time. I wanted the olive mixture to be slightly warm and I think it works better this way. In addition, I substituted parsley with basil because I wanted a stronger herb flavour to go with the fish. In all, a light summery dish for the ridiculously hot weather I am stuck with.
