Greek pickled fish

800 g frozen hake fillets
45 ml olive or sunflower oil
1 lemon, juice
2 medium onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
190 ml olive or sunflower oil
410 g chopped tomatoes
salt and coarsely ground black pepper
45 ml currants
5 ml mixed dried herbs
5 ml sugar
125 ml vinegar (white wine or white grape)
125 ml olive or sunflower oil
black olives (optional)

Preheat the oven to 190 °C and spray an ovenproof dish with non-stick spray or brush with a little oil. Halve each fish fillet lengthwise with a sharp knife. Arrange the fillets in a single layer in an ovenproof dish and drizzle with oil and lemon juice. Bake for about 35 minutes uncovered, until just done. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Fry the onions and garlic in the 190 ml oil until tender and fragrant. Add the tomatoes, salt and black pepper, currants, herbs and sugar and bring to the boil. Simmer slowly for three minutes. Add the vinegar and oil and simmer for another five minutes. Add the black olives if desired. Place the fish fillets in a plastic or glass dish (do not use a metal container) and pour the sauce over to cover. Leave in the fridge overnight so the flavours can develop. The fish will keep well in the fridge for up to five days.
