Easy Greek Fish Skillet Recipe:
- 1½ pounds (4 6-ounce pieces) white fish (I like using cod the best, but any white fish is delicious!)
- 1 lemon, cut in half
- Sea salt and black pepper to taste
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or fat of choice
- 1 medium white onion, halved and sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- ½ cup pitted kalamata olives (I use THESE)
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach
- optional for serving: extra sea salt, lemon wedges, crumbled feta cheese (omit feta for a Whole30 and Paleo approved meal)
- Squeeze the juice from ½ of your lemon all over the top of the white fish. Then sprinkle the top of the fish with sea salt, black pepper and dried oregano. Set aside.
- Add your olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add in the sliced onion and minced garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes or until onion has softened.
- Next, add in your cherry tomatoes, olives and the juice from the other half of the lemon (about ¼ cup lemon juice). Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until a few of the cherry tomatoes begin to burst.
- Stir in the baby spinach and then nestle the fish in the skillet, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Give the dish a little taste and add extra sea salt if needed.
- Serve with lemon wedges and a sprinkle of crumbled feta, if desired. Enjoy!
