Garnish with a fresh basil leaf and serve immediately.

Remarks

For the oil on the bread and the fish, I recommend using the oil from the preserved tomatoes, if possible, as it is well worth adding the extra flavour.

For the same reason, you can use feta in olive oil with herbs instead of plain feta.
