Dalmation Style Fish - Lenten

This easy, wonderful fish recipe has many options.  I've had it with lots of ketchup and an addition of brown sugar.  Too sweet for my taste.  I prefer a lighter version.  Don't leave out the vinegar, it's a key ingredient!
Make it as spicy as you wish with the type of peppers you use.  I don't always use the wine.  If a bottle is open around the house I use it.  This makes a great lenten meal.

It's origins were from the Dalmation coast in Croatia, where seafood was abundant



·  2 lbs frozen or fresh cod or any firm fish
·  ¼ cup Olive oil
·  ½ cup celery, chopped
·  2 large onions, sliced
·  1 cup peppers, sliced (assorted red, yellow & hot)
·  3 cloves of garlic
·  1 28oz can of diced tomatoes
·  1/2 cup red or white wine  (optional)
·  1/3 cup red wine vinegar
·  3T tomato paste or 3T ketchup
·  Salt, Pepper & Flour for dredging *
   Several dashes of Tabasco Hot Sauce

5. Serve over rice pilaf or polenta.  Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro.

*This can be done without this step.  I’m sure it is better for you w/o the added flour.
