- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 1 cup orzo
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 28-ounce can whole peeled Italian tomatoes
- 1 cup water
- Coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 sprig oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 cup pitted mixed olives
- 1 pound cod, cut into 6 pieces
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta
- 1 scallion, sliced
Preheat the broiler with the oven rack in the upper third. Heat olive oil, orzo, and onion in large deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring until orzo is golden, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and their liquid, breaking them up with a spoon. Add the water, oregano, and olives, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring until thick, 8–10 minutes.
Season fish with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Top with feta, drizzle lightly with oil, and broil until fish just flakes, 3–4 minutes. Sprinkle with scallions. Serve.
