I remember the first time I saw the Colosseum. I got chills then as I do every time I go to Rome and lay my eyes it.
Coming from a new country I am always in awe at the history and culture of such an amazing city as Rome.
A few of years ago when my eldest daughter had an exam to write at the University, she asked if I would like to go along. How could I refuse?
A day in Rome, I don’t have to cook lunch, so eat pizza I did, thank you very much.
And dessert? Yes please, gelato, it was creamy and amazing, my two favourite flavours stracciatella (chocolate chip) and chocolate.
I remember that day like it was yesterday. I remember since I had a couple of hours to waste I took a little stroll.
I stopped for an espresso in a quaint little coffee bar, ahhh the good life!
So after a day of self indulging, which I highly recommend, I thought I should make a healthy, good for you but really tasty Baked Fish Dish.

Baked Fish Marinara
Italian Baked Fish Marinara
- 4 thick fish fillet (½-1 inch thick) (I used halibut, frozen fish can be used, de-frost and towel dry before baking)
- 10-14 small roma tomatoes (seeded and cut into small pieces
- ¾ teaspoon oregano
- ¾ teaspoon basil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1-2 dashes hot pepper flakes if desired
- ¼ cup chopped fresh Italian parsley 7 grams
- 3½ tablespoons olive oil (divided)
- Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius)
- In a medium bowl add, cut up seeded tomatoes, oregano, basil, salt, hot pepper flakes, Italian parsley and 2½ tablespoons olive oil. Mix gently to combine.
- Line a medium to large baking pan with a large enough piece of parchment paper (large enough to fold over the fish), line fish fillet (they can be touching) top fish with tomato mixture, drizzle with 1 tablespoon (15 grams) olive oil and fold the parchment paper to cover the fish.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 15-20 minutes. Uncover and drain excess water, raise heat to 400° (200° celsius) and continue to bake for another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
