2. Prepare the topping: Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend to form a coarse paste. Spread over the fish fillets and bake in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

Wine suggestion: White wine is traditionally served with fish but in this case a light red blend or even a rosé will complement the delicious Mediterranean flavours.
