    Baked Fish Fillets with Leeks and Tomatoes

    Can you think of anything better ?
    A bed of Sautéed Leeks cooked gently, to bring out the sweetness 
    The tanginess Of Roma Tomatoes
    And to top this Fresh Fish Fillets, perfectly seasoned, 
    beautifully cooked till it just flakes 

    There’s not a lot to better this
    Plus it’s So So Simple
    You will need:

    2 leeks,  Outer leaves removed washed and finely sliced 
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Slosh of wine wine 

    2 Roma tomatoes sliced about 1 cm
    A little olive oil

    150 gms white fish fillets. I used Terakihi
    2-3 tablespoons Olive oil
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Zest of a lemon
    Juice 1/2 lemon

    In a deep skillet that can go in the oven
    Heat olive oil
    Add leeks and season well with S &P
    Gently cook over Med Heat till the leeks start to soften
    About 10 minutes 
    Turn heat up to high
    Add slosh of white wine 
    Let bubble away about 2 minutes till wine is absorbed
    Turn heat off
    Set aside
    Meanwhile marinate the fish fillets with olive oil, S&P and lemon zest
    Massage well
    Best to marinate for at least 30 minutes minimum

    To cook
    Heat oven to 180C
    Place sliced tomatoes over leeks in skillet
    Season with S & P
    Drizzle over with a little olive oil 
    Place marinated fillets on top
    Into oven for about 7 minutes
    Test with your finger it should be soft, if it is done
    Remove and serve

    I served with Baby Potatoes boiled and tossed in Butter
