Tomatoes, onions, green olives and oranges is a classic combination in Spanish cuisine and works well with fish or chicken. With fish, this dish cooks up in minutes, making it perfect for an easy midweek meal.
The inspiration for this recipe comes from a recipe using halibut that we found in Real Simple magazine. We used cod instead and loved it!
For me, it was reminiscent of our favorite fish stew and was just as good the next day.
