  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 red snapper fillet each about 6 oz/ 175 g
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 6 lemon wedges
  • 6 lime wedges
Tomato Pepper Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 roasted sweet red pepper chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Method

Tomato Pepper Sauce: In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, red pepper, cumin, oregano, pepper and salt, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened and sauce can mound on spoon, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours. Reheat to continue.) Stir in parsley.

Meanwhile, sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper. Place on greased grill or in grill pan over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested, about 6 minutes. (Or broil about 6 inches/15 cm from heat for same time.) Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with tomato pepper sauce and lemon wedges.
