  1. Season the fish cut in cubes with salt and pepper and lay in a pan with heated olive oil. Once cooked, transfer to a plate and set aside.

  2. In the same pan, warm some more olive oil, add the capers, olives, garlic, fennel seeds and chilli flakes, and cook until everything is toasty and fragrant (about 2 minutes). Then add 2 tablespoons of water to the pan and remove from heat.
