    DIRECTIONS

    1. Season fish well with salt and pepper. Mix oregano, Old Bay seasoning and flour; sprinkle over fish.

    2. Brown fish in a small amount of oil for approximately 3 to 4 minutes on each side, depending on fish thickness. Place fish in an ovenproof glass pan.

    3. Slightly cook peppers, onion and garlic in hot olive oil for approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Turn off heat and add olives, capers, bay leaves; stir.

    4. In a medium-size pan, mix red vinegar, tomato paste and fish broth; cook until mixture is reduced by one third.

    5. Cover fish with marinade and the reduced broth mixture. For better flavor, marinate overnight or at least 8 hours.
