Zesty caponata (the Italian cousin of Frances ratatouille) turns ordinary fish into a fresh and lively dinner. Another time, try the caponata on your favorite sandwich or use it to top off broiled chicken.
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels.
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.
Wipe out skillet with paper towels. Sprinkle fish with the salt and pepper. In the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add fish; cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve caponata with fish. If desired, garnish with lemon wedges. Makes 4 servings.
