Ingredients

  • 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

  • 1/2 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!

Notes

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.
