Spanish Style Red Snapper

This fish dish (aha, that rhymed) was such a hit right off the bat that none of us can wait until I make it again. Even Number Two had two servings! Similar to a Veracruz-Style fish but without any jalapenos or raisins, but you could easily add what flavorings you think you’d like. I wasn’t too keen on the raisins, but if I’d had any pepper I probably would have added them. Either way, this came out awesome.


Spanish Style Red Snapper

4 lbs red snapper fillets

1/4 cup EVOO

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced

1 (15 oz) can of diced tomatoes

1/3 cup chicken broth, divided

1/4 cup sliced green olives, pitted

2 T drained capers

1 tsp oregano

2 bay leaves

1. Preheat oven to 425*. Grease baking dish and pour 1/3 cup of chicken broth into the bottom. Arrange fish in pan (skin side down) and set aside.

2. Drain tomatoes but reserve the juice. Using a masher or fork, crush tomatoes to a coarse puree (is ok if it’s still a little chunky). Drain again and reserve all the juices together.

3. Heat oil in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and stir for a minute. Add garlic and stir another 30 seconds. Add tomato puree, bay leaves, oregano, and reserved juice. Combine and cook for a few minutes.

4. Add broth, capers and olives. Salt & pepper to taste. Cook a few more minutes until thickened or mixture is heated through.

5. Spoon over fish and bake for about 18 minutes, or until fish is just opaque in the center.
