Bruschetta is one of my favourite foods. I love the combination of flavours. Think fresh tomato and basil, tart balsamic vinegar and fragrant garlic. Pop it all on some crusty sourdough bread and you’ve got a flavour party in your mouth. You can try my latest twist – Ricotta Whip Bruschetta – for something a little different! I reckon it totally improves on the original recipe.
The love of these flavours runs so deep that I began experimenting with other ways that I could use them. The result? My Fish with Tomato and Feta Salsa recipe was born. It’s a delicious combination of beautiful fresh flavours piled on top of a lovely piece of pan-fried fish. Yum!
It’s a delicious, low carbohydrate, high protein meal, that’s quick and easy to whip up on a weeknight. White fish is a fantastic low fat protein, and rich in nutrition. Just add some baked potatoes or wholewheat couscous for some extra carbohydrate if you need it. Enjoy!

Ingredients (serves 4)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 x (200g each) white fish fillets (snapper, basa, ling, etc)
