high. Sear the filets until golden brown and flip to sear in the other
side. Remove filets from pan and reserve on a rack over a plate to catch
juices. Return the pan to the heat, add onions and cook, stirring often
over high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeno slices, lime
wedges, tomatoes, oregano and olives and saute briskly 30 seconds more. Add
white wine and reduce to half. Add fish stock and bring to a boil, reduce
to a simmer and return fish filets along with the juices to pan to finish
cooking, covered, about 1-3 minutes depending upon the thickness of filets.
Taste broth and adjust seasoning (salt/pepper/oregano), then serve
immediately in soup plates with a generous puddle of broth and garnish of
vegetables atop.
