1. Slice the onion. Heat the oil in a frying-pan and fry the onion until tender but not browned.
2. Add the tomatoes, parsley and seasoning. Stir well, bring to the boil and cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the courgettes and fish steaks to the pan, return to the boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked. Transfer to serving plates or a dish and serve.
Tip : If mullet steaks are difficult to find, choose other large fish steaks, such as cod, haddock or mailbut, as an alternative.
Serve this casserole with plainly boiled White, or Brown, rice. Alternatively, crusty French or Greek bread and butter, to mop up the juices, would be even quicker to prepare. No extra vegetables will be needed. Enjoy your meal!
