Red snapper fillets are baked with a sauce made from onion, garlic, green peppers, cinnamon, lime juice, green olives, chillies and tomatoes. It's a light, yet highly satisfying fish dish.
Tinned diced green chillies can be substituted for fresh chillies to taste. Red snapper fillets. If unavailable at your local supermarket, ask at your local fishmonger.
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! - 07 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 20 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 16 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
