4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. dried oregano
½ cup Kalamata olives, sliced
½ cup green olives, sliced
¼ cup capers


Heat oil in a large, wide saucepan on medium-high heat.
Place fish fillets on pan and cook until each side is golden brown, but not cooked all the way through. When ready, transfer fillets from the pan to a plate.
