  1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and stir fry the onion and aubergine for about 4 minutes, until they start to turn golden.
  2. Then cover with a lid and let them steam for 6 minutes, to help soften them.

  4. Sprinkle the basil leaves over the sauce.

  6. Place the fish in the sauce and cover the pan and cook for 6-8 minutes until the fish flakes easily when tested with a knife.
  7. Tear the rest of the basil leaves over the pan of fish, and serve.
  8. You can serve with a salad, crusty bread, asparagusor whatever takes your fancy.
