Healthy, delicious, thick sauce made with simple fresh ingredients reminiscent of a bruschetta topping cover a grilled mild white fish. I like to serve it with brown rice that has been mixed with butter and Parmesan cheese. If you are watching fat and calories, omit the butter and cheese.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, salt, and pepper; cook and stir over medium heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach, basil, and capers. Cook until most of the liquid has evaporated and sauce is thick and chunky, 10 to 20 minutes.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat.

  • Rub remaining 1 tablespoon oil over amberjack fillets. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top. Grill fillets until opaque and flaky, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Serve fillets topped with sauce.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 2 cups diced fresh tomatoes for the canned tomatoes if preferred (or use a combination).

Halibut or tilapia (or any mild fish) would also work well.

The only thing I altered is that I double the recipe because I was making a significant amount of Amberjack, so I used one can of diced tomato's and one can of rotel tomato's to add some spice to the recipe. It was very tasty! Read More

I pretty much stuck to recipe using diced fresh tomatoes and lots of garlic and fresh amberjack which is an excellent firm-textured mild-tasting white fish that grills very nicely. Turned out fantastic. Will definitely fix again if I see amberjack available again. Read More
