  • Cut the garlic in slices and the onion in bronoise (small squares). Season the fish with salt and pepper.
  • Sauté the garlic in a frying pan with a little oil and when it begins to brown, add the onion.
  • While the onion is frying, cook the fish fillets in the same frying pan. Set aside and reserve the fish fillets on a plate (if you want, you can grill the fish or cook it in a separate pan).
  • Pour the orange juice and let it cook until it reduces a little. Add the tomato sauce, mix and leave on the heat for a few minutes. Add salt. Grind (optional).
  • Add the fish to the sauce so that it cooks a little with the sauce.
  • If we choose to accompany it with pasta, we will cook it as we are used to.
  • To serve, we can put a little sauce on the plate, the pasta and on top the fish with more sauce. If you want, you can decorate the dish with orange zest.
