Why I Love This Recipe

This is recipe altered from a cookbook about Frida Kahlo and the parties she made. I used fillets instead of a whole fish and sauted the onions before baking. It's very tasty and very forgiving. Also if you are counting calories which even I do occasionally you can substitute half of the olive oil with tomato sauce. My husband likes cutting it with wine which is the recipe I have included below.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb. red snapper fillet
salt and pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 T.capers, rinsed
1 doz. olives, pitted (good ones)
1 sprig thyme
1 sprig oregano
3 bay leaves
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 red onion, halved,sliced and sauted
l jalapeno, minced
1 chipotle in adobo, minced
1/2 C. olive oil (a good one)
1/4 C. white wine( one you'd drink)


Directions

Wash and dry fish.


Season.


Arrange in baking dish. I use a round one.


Top with tomatoes, onions, chilies, garlic (can be sauted with onions), herbs and sprinkle with olive oil and wine.


Bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees, basting every 15 minutes or so.


Delish!
