  • 3 cups diced zucchini
  • 2 cups halved fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • 4 red snapper or orange roughy fillets (6 ounces each)


  1. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the zucchini, mushrooms and onion in 1 tablespoon oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and, if desired, pepper flakes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in another large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook fillets in remaining oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with vegetable mixture.
