Fluke Puttanesca

There’s something glorious about finishing up a tough workout and getting a text from your dad with this picture:

It means two very good things:

1. My dad had a great time out on his boat today.

2. DINNER!

Growing up we always had fluke breaded and fried, but that doesn’t work out too well on the diet. I love a foil packet meal, and figured that would be a great way to keep my awesome new grill working for us! Creating a quick and easy puttanesca sauce also allowed me to use up some of our fresh produce out of the garden.

Ingredients:
2 large fish filets (I used fluke, but any filet would work)
1 tsp. olive oil
1 onion – diced
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp. anchovy paste
4 plum tomatoes – chopped
2 Tbsp. capers
1/4 cup pitted olives – halved
1/4 cup chopped basil

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and brown. Stir in anchovy paste and allow to melt into the onions and garlic.
2. Add tomatoes, capers, and olive. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook for 5 minutes, then stir in basil.
3. Place each fish filet on a large piece of foil. Top with puttanesca mixture. Seal by forming a packet with the foil.
4. Heat grill to medium high heat. Grill packets for 15 minutes.
5. Remove packets from grill and carefully open to serve.
