*Water or fat-free broth can be used in place of white wine.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil and add onion, red pepper, carrots, and garlic. Saute for 10 minutes then add wine and bring to a boil. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan.
Arrange fillets in a single layer in center of skillet. Cover to cook for 5 minutes. Add tomato and olives. Top with cheese then cover and cook for 3 minutes or until fish is firm but moist. Transfer fish to a serving platter and add vegetables and pan juices.
Serve fish on top of vegetables with brown rice. Enjoy!
