Preparation steps

1.

Peel, rinse and cut potatoes into large pieces. Cook potatoes in a pot of boiling salted water until tender, 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, blanch tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for 10 seconds. Drain, rinse under cold water and remove skins. Halve, seed and dice tomatoes. Rinse zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and cut crosswise into pieces. Peel and chop garlic. Rinse thyme and shake dry. Set aside some for garnish and strip remaining leaves from stalks.

2.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a wide pan, add the zucchini  and garlic and saute over medium heat, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, thyme and vegetable broth and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

3.

Rinse fish and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper and turn in flour. Heat the remaining oil and the butter in a pan. Add fish and sauté over medium heat until golden brown, turning once, until cooked through, 4-6 minutes.

4.

Drain potatoes and season the potatoes and the zucchini mixture with salt and pepper. Serve alongside the fish garnished with the reserved thyme.
