1/4 c Cooked lentils
2 tb Sliced green olives
1 tb Chopped tomatoes
1 tb Chopped shallots
1/2 tb Balsamic vinegar

Season fish fillet with salt and pepper. In a medium skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil until rippling. Add fish, skinned-side up and sear for 3 minutes. Add lentils, olives, tomatoes and shallots. Using a spoon gently stir vegetables. Turn fish and cook for 2 minutes. Add vinegar and cook 30 seconds. Add stock, bring to a boil and reduce liquids by half.
