In a large skillet, heat the
Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sauté the onion and garlic for 5 minutes over moderate heat. Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, wine, olives, basil, capers, oregano, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper and stir well to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil; then reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.

Push the mixture to one side of the skillet and lay the fillets skin-side down in the skillet. Mound the tomato mixture on top of the fillets, cover the skillet, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the fillets are firm and opaque. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
