Pizza Fish

It's always hard coming home from vacation. But especially when that vacation was a total carbfest involving endless pizza and pasta (and I don't mean the zucchini crust and spaghetti squash types.) I'm not going to beat myself up over all the wine because 1) I was in ITALY and 2) It's part of my regular lifestyle. Hehe. However, I can certainly eliminate or at least significantly cut back on starch and grain.

That said I am still craving Italian style dishes so I searched for something reminiscent of the food I was eating on vacation but that wouldn't leave me feeling heavy and bloated. Which is a perfectly acceptable and even welcomed feeling when you're, say, sailing to Capri with a Peroni in hand but not so much when you're back to your "real life." Sigh.

1lb white flaky fish (cod, haddock, halibut, bluefish)
4 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp fresh basil
1 tbsp fresh oregano
1 tbsp fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic
4 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced (or 1/2 cup shredded)
1/4 cup grated parmesan
black pepper
red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 350
Place fish in a pre-greased glass baking dish
In a food processor, blend tomato paste, garlic, basil, oregano and rosemary. Add water to create the desired consistency.
Spread tomato sauce over fish evenly
Top with fresh mozzarella and parmesan
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until fish is flaky
Top with black pepper and red pepper flakes
