Preparation time: 45 minutes. Serves 4 guests. Approximate cost per person $3.00 depending on local ingredients market price. You will need a rectangular Pyrex and aluminum foil.

Cover the bottom of the rectangular Pyrex with aluminum foil enough to make a pouch. Place the cod fillets and drizzle with olive oil, salt, oregano, salt and pepper. Then layer the fish with rest of ingredients. Drizzle a little olive oil, more salt and pepper, lemon juice, add the olives and cover with another piece of aluminum foil to close the pouch.
