  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion, garlic, chillies and capers and cook gently over medium heat until onion is soft.
  2. Add the tomatoes and wine. Reduce heat to low and simmer, breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon as the sauce cooks.
  3. Once sauce begins to thicken add the fish fillets and push them down into the pan. Cover and cook over low heat until the fish flakes with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes.
