Red Snapper Vera Cruz

This is my favorite dish when we go to Cozumel, Mexico. It has the taste of the island and it is a very healthy dish. Quick and easy to make, it puts me in the island mood! Quick and easy to make!

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
4
snapper filets, 6 oz. each
2
tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1
medium sweet onion chopped
2
tsp minced garlic
1/4
cup dry white wine or chicken stock
2
large tomatoes or 4 small tomatoes chopped
2
tbsp capers, drained
1
jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
1/3
cup green olives, chopped
chopped cilantro optional (if you love cilantro, this really makes the dish
Directions
1.
Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
2.
Salt and pepper the fish on both sides.
3.
Place the fish in baking dish sprayed with non stick spray (or you can place the fish in a 10x10 inch foil square to make a foil packet.
4.
Drizzle the wine or chicken stock over the fish.
5.
Next, layer the onion, garlic, tomatoes, capers and jalapeno pepper over the fish.
6.
Drizzle with some more olive oil and additional salt and pepper.
7.
Bake 20 minutes or until fish flakes apart easily.
8.
Notes: I you want to create a dramatic flare, you can use parchment paper for the packet. If you are using the foil to make a packet, place fish in middle of foil square, drizzle with olive oil or chicken stock. Layer the rest of the ingredients, fold up the foil packet, place the pockets on a baking dish or cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until fish easily flakes apart.
9.
You can also make this with any kind of white fish you desire. Talapia works well also!
