“This is a a favorite at our house with all the flavors that we love. I would say don't even try this with frozen tuna (it just isn't the same), only fresh will do!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 3 TBS oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat; add the onions and saute about 5 minutes until soft.
  2. Add the garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes, then add in the tomatoes, basil and capers, stirring well to combine.
  3. Simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes; mixture will thicken.
  4. Remove sauce to a bowl and set aside.
  5. Wipe out the sauce pan, then heat with remaining 3 TBS of oil over medium heat.
  6. Salt and pepper fish to taste, then place in the pan when oil is hot.
  7. Cook fish about 3 minutes per side (fish should be light brown at edges but still pink inside).
  8. Pour the tomato mixture over the fish and simmer for about 5 minutes, then serve immediately!
