Grouper with Tomato and Basil
Serves 4

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 lbs. grouper cut into 4, 8 oz. fillets
1/2 cup coarsely diced tomato
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
working off the heat, put 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet and add fish, turning to coat with oil on both sides. Place fish skinned and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss together tomato, garlic, basil, remaining tablespoon oil, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl, then mound on top of fish. Cover skillet with a tight-fitting lid and cook fish over moderately high heat until just cooked through, about 8 minutes. Gently remove the fish from the skillet and serve on plates with tomato sauce.
