Such fresh, light, bright flavors!

I tried this recipe on a whim and am glad I did! I had actually never cooked with capers before, and wasn't sure about the caper, olive, tomoato combo. I actually forgot the shallots, but still thought it was wonderful as-is. This will be in my regular rotation.

Easy and delicious!
just fair

i just made this dish last night. we thought it was just ok . we prefer more flavorful meals. i followed the recipe, only doubled it because i had and extra 1/3 lb. of cod. sorry i wasted my time and money on this dinner. however, it did get good reviews...


I made this for dinner (my husband gets great meals whenever I'm on the Eating Well diet), and we both enjoyed it. Thanks EW!

Easy, ingredients I usually have around (except for fresh fish)
Tasty food doesn't get much easier than this

I had a pound of cod and needed to throw together a quick meal. Had capers (key flavor ingredient) and substituted green onions for shallots, had good campari tomatoes, no olives, used dried herbes de province instead of fresh oregano. Because you are doing all the tapenade prep while the fish is baking, from start to finish is basically how long it takes to bake the fish - 15 to 20 min. The tapenade has a fresh rich flavor with the balsamic, capers & sauteed tomatoes. This is a winner for a busy weekday evening but tastes special enough to serve to company. Highly recommended!

Incredibly simple and quick
Great easy and quick fish dinner with lo-calories

This was easy to throw together and it was delicious. At 151 calories per serving it will be on my regular rotation from now on.
