A warm dish in the sukkah is the perfect way to cozy up during a Yom Tov meal. I love this light and simple fish, it’s bursting with flavor and looks elegant plated. Best of all, it cooks in under 20 minutes and uses my favorite Tuscanini crackers. Enjoy!

3 tablespoons olive oil

6-8 cloves garlic, crushed

1 bottle Tuscanini diced tomatoes

1 cup Tuscanini Kalamata olives, rinsed

1/4 cup cilantro leaves

Microgreens, for garnish

Tuscanini parchment crackers, for serving
