Fresh Tomatoes Tonight? Good For You!

(NAPSA)-When you realize how good tomatoes are for you, you’ll enjoy their good flavor even more. Florida tomatoes are in season right now, and they’re loaded with lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps keep us healthy! You get the full benefits of lycopene in Fish Fillets with Fresh Tomato Sauce, a colorful dish that is low in fat and very easy to make.


  • 4 flounder or other thin, mild-flavored fish fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 12 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 14 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut in thin wedges (about 1 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1 pound fully ripened fresh Florida tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 14 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Sprinkle fish fillets lightly with half of the salt and black pepper; set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat; add onion and garlic; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, olives, Italian seasoning, and the remaining salt and pepper; cover and simmer until tomatoes release their juices, about 5 minutes. Arrange fish fillets in a single layer on top; cover and simmer until fish is opaque in the center, about 5 minutes. With a spatula, transfer fish fillets to serving plates; spoon Fresh Tomato Sauce on top. Serve over rice, if desired.
