tablespoons olive oil
cups chopped, peeled eggplant
small yellow, green, or red sweet pepper, coarsely chopped
cup bottled picante sauce

Lemon wedges (optional)
  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels.

  3. Cut up any large tomato pieces; set aside. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add eggplant; cook about 3 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in undrained tomatoes, sweet pepper, picante sauce, and garlic. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in balsamic vinegar. Remove from skillet; set aside.
