Cook Time

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: sauce for 6-8 filets

Ingredients

  • 4-5 tomatoes; vine-ripened & heirlooms are nice, seeded & diced
  • 2-3 Anaheim chiles, broiled, peeled, seeded & diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, broiled, peeled, seeded & diced
  • 2 TBSP. capers, drained
  • ½ cup green olives with pimentos, chopped coarsely
  • 2-3 shallots, minced
  • 4-6 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2-4 TBSP. olive oil
  • 2 TBSP. flour, optional
  • 4-6 Red Snapper Filets, ½ lb weight on each filet

How to Do it:

  1. Slice all peppers in half and seed them.
  2. Flatten, and place on foil. Place under broiler.
  3. Remove when skins are blackened. Let cool, and then carefully remove skin. A sharp paring knife works well for this, sliding the tip under the pepper's skin like a letter opener.
  4. Dice.
  5. Mince shallots & garlic, but keep these separate from each other.
  6. Heat @2 TBSP. olive oil in frying pan. Add shallots when sizzling.
  7. Add peppers.
  8. Add garlic.
  9. Simmer a few minutes, stirring now and again to ensure garlic doesn't burn.
  10. Chop olives.
  11. Add olives.
  12. Add drained capers.
  13. Seed your tomatoes by halving them, and thumbing out the seeds and jelly. Blot dry before dicing. TIP: I leave the skins on for health reasons!
  14. Add tomatoes to pan. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
  15. Add cinnamon, simmer a minute or so more, and remove from heat. Set aside.
  16. Sprinkle flour on snapper filets verrrry lightly. Smooth over with hand. If you have a really good pan, you can skip this step entirely, as I do it simply to prevent the fish from sticking.
  17. Place in sizzling pan, and do not crowd. Cook about 1½ minutes each side.
  18. I like to blot up the excess oil, before adding back the Veracruz to the pan.
  19. Add Veracruz to pan and coat filets thoroughly--but carefully. Cooked fish is delicate!!
  20. Plate & serve!

warm through, spoon onto fish as you plate and enjoy!

      Hey Neighbor!

      Thank you for saying! It is very tasty dish; I might go a little heavy on the sauce (because everything is better with extra "frosting") but it's a super vibrant tasting...all those termaters and briny olives and capers...

      Yes do eat fish!! It is so good for you, and loaded with omegas, too, and is super easy for the body to assimilate.

      Have a great day, Career Mommy! I was tickled to see a notification from the Hubs this morning, so thank you for that! :) Karen R

      Wow, this looks intense and delicious. You've put a lot of thought and care into this recipe. I love red snapper and I've been talking to the hubby about having more fish in our diets, for health reasons. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
