Tilapia with Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

by Erika Nicole Kendall

1  tablespoon  cooking oil
4  cloves garlic, minced
1/2  cup  red wine
2 1/2  cups crushed tomatoes in thick puree
1 1/4  teaspoons  dried rosemary
1 1/4  teaspoons  salt
1/2  teaspoon  fresh-ground black pepper
2  pounds  tilapia fillets
1 1/2  cups  chopped drained and rinsed artichoke hearts
2  tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley or basil

In a large deep frying pan, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the wine, tomatoes, rosemary, 3/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Bring to a simmer and continue simmering, covered, for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle the fillets with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Nestle the fish in the sauce, bring back to a simmer, and continue simmering gently, covered, until just done, about 6 minutes for 1/2-inch-thick fillets.

Carefully remove the fish from the pan. Stir the artichoke hearts and parsley into the sauce and cook until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir in any accumulated juices from the fish. Spoon the sauce over the tilapia.
