Broiled Fish with Tapenade

A tapenade (TA-puh-nahd) is a thick paste made from olives, olive oil, and a variety of seasonings. It's used as a spread or condiment for bread, vegetables, fish, or meat. This tapenade is a little different from the one in the "Snacks and Beverages" chapter--it has sun-dried tomatoes instead of onions and is stirred instead of processed in a food processor.
