Tuscan Fish Melt

Paired with pasta cooked in a slightly tangy tomato-based sauce, this sophisticated dish will go well with a glass of your favorite white wine. 

Serves 4


For the tapenade
2 cloves garlic
4 tablespoons capers
1 cup pitted black olives
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon anchovies

600 grams cream dory fillet
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour for dredging
1/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon of tapenade (see recipe above)
20-gram mozzarella cheese slices
1/4 cup garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup tomato sauce
600 grams spaghetti noodles, cooked according to package directions
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
basil leaves
chopped parsley


1  Make the olive tapenade: Blend garlic, capers, black olives, lemon juice, black pepper,  olive oil, and anchovies in a food processor until smooth. 

2  Wash and cut dory fillet into 150-gram pieces and season with salt and pepper. 

3  Lightly dredge fish in flour. 

4  Heat oil in a nonstick pan and cook fish until golden brown. Put tapenade over each fish fillet. 

5  Top each with a mozzarella cheese slices. 

6  Broil in the oven or put in the oven toaster to melt the cheese. 

7  Make the tomato pasta: In a pan, sauté garlic in olive oil. Add tomato sauce. 

8  Add spaghetti noodles to sauce and toss with Parmesan cheese. 

9  Season with salt and pepper. 

10  To serve, plate the pasta and the cheese- and tapenade-topped fish fillet. Garnish with Parmesan cheese, basil leaves, and chopped parsley.
