  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a rectangular baking dish large enough to fit the fish fillets in a single layer.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in plum tomatoes and red bell pepper; simmer until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato puree; cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir salt, bouillon cube, oregano, cinnamon, pepper, and bay leaves into the saucepan. Cook until flavors combine, about 10 minutes. Add olives and capers; simmer for 5 minutes. Remove sauce from heat.
  4. Melt butter in a separate skillet over medium heat. Season fish fillets with salt and pepper; cook in the hot butter until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  5. Lay fish fillets in the baking dish in a single layer; cover with sauce. Arrange sliced peppers on top. Cover baking dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute jalapeno pepper slices for the banana peppers if preferred.
