Even though this dish is healthy, it is also very tasty and can be elegantly plated for those special dinners.

This is my tweaked version of a recipe found in Steven Raichlen's Big Flavor Cookbook.

Finely chop onions, garlic and jalapenos in food processor

Heat olive oil medium high in heavy skillet (I use my cast iron)

Add onion mixture to oil and cook just until onions and garlic begin to brown (do not overbrown)

Turn heat to high and add tomatoes. Cook until most of the tomato juices are gone, then stir in capers,jalapeno juice, oregano, bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves and fish stock.
