  • 2 Cups Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half or quarters
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1⁄2 Teaspoon Finely Chopped Parsley, divided

  1. In a large skillet with a lid, combine the olive oil and garlic and sauté until the garlic turns golden, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, 1 tablespoon of the parsley, chile flakes, white wine and water and season with salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Turn the heat down, carefully add the fish fillets to the pan, and then turn them to coat with the cooking liquid. Cover with the lid and cook for 15 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked through. Season with salt, divide amongst four plates and garnish with remaining 1⁄2 teaspoon parsley. Serve immediately.
