Fish marinated in tomato caper paste recipe is a wonderful dish with savory and sometimes salty green capers combined in a rich tomato paste blended and coated on fish. The use of white fish although generic utilizes a very neutral fish that is firm when marinated and cooks and absorbs the marinade extremely well. We use the white fish and the marinades and produce an ultimate meat when combined with capers, tomato paste, olive oil, dill and more. The fish is then cooked and the sauce coated on top of the fish for presentation to produce the ultimate in flavors.
I've used this dish multiple times at catering events where we set out to create a memorable evening for our clients. The fish marinated in advance and the marinade coating sauce is prepared in advance as well. We warm the two items separately and combine over each dish prior to the guests sitting down. The dishes are completed with broccoli or mixed vegetables and a bread dipping sauce is placed alongside the table. In addition to the fish marinated and caper sauce we add a fluffy mashed potato mix to which we top with a little caper sauce and some homemade brown gravy.
Someone once asked me if you could replace the capers in tomato paste with another vegetable. After some consideration I told them I'm sure you can find an alternate to round out the sauce. I might blend some spinach and olive oil which would be combined with the sauce along with some dill. I think this combination would offer a fresh, creamy replacement for the capers if you desire.
