I have needed to cook more for a long time now, in order to become less fat. I am very, very fat these days, fat like a cow, fat like Fat Jesus, fat like a planet that is actually a big fat man. Soon I will have access to a better-equipped kitchen, but in the meantime, I do what I can. What I can, last night, was this:

- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 diced yellow onion
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 5 tomatoes, drained, chopped and cooked
- 2 tbsp minced capers
- 1/2 cup Empeltre olives, drained and chopped
- 1/2 tsp dried crushed red pepper
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 lb lake whitefish

1. Heat oil and saute onion until tender. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, capers, olives, red pepper and parsley. Bring to light boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

2. Spread half of tomato mixture in a baking dish and arrange whitefish filets in a single layer. Drizzle with lemon juice and top with remaining tomato mixture.

3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish is flaky at 400 degrees. Baste once with tomato mixture while baking.

4. Serve with a huge jug of martinis to ensure you don't get any work done after you eat.

I forgot to take any pictures of this, so instead, here's a picture of a whitefish and a person from Livorno.
