A question about a recipe: Tilapia Poached in Olive Oil with Thyme and Garlic

I have a question about the recipe "Tilapia Poached in Olive Oil with Thyme and Garlic" from Merrill Stubbs. How much of the oil do you think the fish absorbs? Does it become quite heavy and calorific?

It's been noted in previous threads by others that the absorption is minima. I have a hard time believing that, but have no science guiding my skepticism.
