2 tilapia fillets, or turbot   360 g
3 sun-dried tomatoes (oil packed), finely chopped   1 1/2 tbsp
2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped   8 g
2 tsp Parsley and Garlic Base (Recipe)   10 mL
2 tsp olive paste   10 g
1 1/4 tsp capers, finely chopped   3 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF.
  2. Finely chop the sun-dried tomatoes, anchovies, and capers. Transfer to a small bowl, add the oil, parsley and garlic base, and olive paste, then mix thoroughly.
  3. Since each fish fillet is uneven in thickness, here is the trick to ensure uniform cooking: cut each fillet into 2 pieces lengthwise, then put each piece separately on a lightly-oiled baking sheet and brush them lightly with oil. Cover with the sauce. Do not add salt – the sauce is already fairly salty. Add a little bit of pepper.
  4. Place in the lower third of the oven and cook for about 10 min (5-6 min per cm of thickness) until the tops have changed colour. Since the cooking time depends on the thickness of the fillets and the actual temperature of your oven, it is important to check with a fork to see if they are cooked through.The thinner pieces will be done before the thicker ones: pull them out when ready, then cover and keep warm while waiting for the remaining ones to be done.
  5. Serve on the warmed plates.
