Spicy Fishies

2-4 orange roughy or tilapia filets
1 14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles (Muir Glen has a good one)
2 T capers (or kalamat olives...different flavor with these)
salt and pepper
2 T dried basil
2 shallots or 1/4 larger onion, diced
3 cloves garlic chopped fine
2 T olive oil

Put olive oil in large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add onions or shallots and garlic and cook till tender. Add basil, capers, and tomatoes with green chiles and cook about 3 more minutes till hot. Move stuff to the side of the pan and add the fish. Cook about 3 minutes on first side, then 2-3 on the second till done (white through and no longer translucent). Yummy and even really healthy piled up on greens like spinach or chard. If you use the Muir Glen tomatoes, it has a kick. Great with rice or other grains on the side.
