TILAPIA WITH FENNEL AND TOMATO

Recipe from Molly Siegler of Whole Foods Market

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 small fennel bulbs, quartered and thinly sliced
1 leek, white portion only, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 (14.5-ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon saffron threads
6 (5- to 6-ounce) tilapia fillets
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Method:
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add fennel and leek and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 cup water, tomatoes, wine and saffron and simmer for 5 minutes.

Push vegetables to the side and arrange fish in the skillet, then cover with vegetables. Cover skillet, lower heat to low and simmer until fish is just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve fish with vegetables and broth spooned over the top.
