“Perhaps one of the most celebrated Mexican fish dishes, this snapper recipe comes from the pretty seacoast town for which it was named. Use red snapper or rockfish.”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green pepper, onion, and garlic, and cook until pepper is soft, about 5 minutes. Mix in the white pepper, cinnamon, lime juice, olives, and chiles; cook for 2 more minutes, to blend the flavors. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the snapper filets into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour the tomato sauce over the filets, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Stir in the capers just before serving.

Excellent recipe. I used RoTel canned tomatoes with cilantro, lime and chilis. Also added some white wine, simmered to reduce liquid, poured over the fish and baked. Topped with Mexican cheese at the end of baking time. Delicious!

I live in Mexico, so I consider myself semi-knowledgeable when it comes to Mexican tastes. The recipe did not taste very authentic....I've been to Veracruz many times...and the ingredients were there, but the taste was lacking. Also, the cinnamon was wrong! Too much and wrong flavor.

Was not impressed with this recipe. I'm not big on a lot of ingredients smothering my fish, however, I thought my family would enjoy it. They didn't care for it either.
