Print Friendly and PDF

We showed in a previous post how to prepare whiting (gavros) as a meze. Below you can see another way of preparing it as a delicious dish with red, green, orange and yellow peppers.


1 kg small whiting
1 onion sliced into fine rings
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 orange pepper
1 yellow pepper
2 cloves garlic
4 tbsp tomatoes cut into cubes without juice or seeds
3 tbsp parsley chopped
60 ml olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste


Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds.

Place the peppers under the grill with the skin side up for approx. 15 minutes.

You can now remove the skin easily and discard it.

Remove the head, tail and central bone from the whiting, keeping just the fillet but making sure that the fish are whole and not split.

Salt the fish and place in the fridge while you prepare the sauce.

Slice the peppers.

Place the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onion rings for 2 minutes.

Add the peppers and garlic and fry for another 3 minutes.

Add the tomato cubes and parsley, stir and fry for another 2 minutes, adding salt and pepper.

Place half of the sauce you have now prepared in a shallow oven dish.

Arrange the fish on top of the sauce and then spread the remaining sauce on top.

Place in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes, so that the fish is cooked and the sauce set.
