Sorta Portuguese Fish Skillet

We have all been struck by a terrible cold, so I am finally getting around to posting. This is an easy and healthy family meal, that can be enjoyed by any babies over 10 months, just salt adult individual portions instead. For younger babies, you could just take out a few of the potatoes before adding them to the skillet and puree with whatever you have on hand to make them tasty.For this dish, you can use any kind of white fish, I used pollock because that's what I had, but cod wold be more traditional and haddock would also be really good or even tilapia.  I apologize for the terrible picture. My husband was anxious to actually eat it rather than look at it.

Sorta Portuguese Fish Skillet

- 2 cups canned tomatoes, drained
- 2 cups potatoes, sliced to 1/4" thickness
- 2 tbsp butter or olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups diced celery
- 2 medium onions, halved and thinly slice into half-moons
- 1 lb fresh or thawed frozen white fish fillets, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1/4 sliced pitted black olives
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- crumbled feta, to garnish

In a medium saucepan, cook potato slices in boiling salted water until just starting to get tender. 

Put the tomatoes and butter (or olive oil) in a large skillet over medium heat and bring to a boil. Break the tomatoes up as they cook with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Add celery and onions; simmer until the onion have softened, about 5 minutes. Add the fish, salt, pepper, olives and potatoes. Stir to mix everything well. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until fish is cooked and flakes with a fork. Stir in the parsley. Serve garnished with crumbled feta cheese to taste. 

Makes 4 adult servings
