1 tablespoon fresh chopped garlic
3/4 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 each plum tomatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
12 basil leaves, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (1 teaspoon dry)

1 1/2 cup vegetable or chicken broth
1/2 cup white wine

Place garlic, onions, celery and carrots in food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chopped vegetables and saute until they begin to soften. Add tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes are fully cooked. Add wine and cook 1 minute more. Add chopped herbs and broth, then bring to a simmer. Season both sides of fish fillets with salt and pepper and add to simmering sauce. Sauce should barely cover fish. Cook until fish starts to flake and is cooked throughout. Transfer the fish to a shallow bowl and pour sauce over and around fish. Top with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and chopped parsley.
