Red Snapper Fish Recipe

Last night we tried something new here. I had gone to Trader Joes yesterday morning while Jonah was in school and came across some frozen Red Snapper fish. I'd never had it but felt intrigued...Red Snapper sounds like a pretty cool fish, right? At the store they had a suggestion as how to prepare it and I took that suggestion and ran with it. Here is what I came up with:
Red Snapper

2 Red Snapper fillets
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
2 Limes sliced
A handful or two of small cherry tomatoes, sliced
A quarter or half of an onion sliced
A handful of cilantro
5 cloves of garlic

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Zest one lime to save for later. Add some olive oil to a glass pan. Season the fish with salt and pepper then place inside pan. On top of the fish add the slices of limes, then the tomatoes, and onions. Gently cut up the cilantro and scatter over the fish. Smash - but do not cut any further - the cloves of garlic and scatter around the fish. Go over the entire dish with another round of olive oil, then salt and pepper to season. Take the reserved lime zest and sprinkle that on top. Bake in the oven for about 20-25minutes, or until cooked.

We had a wonderfully zany rice dish (also from Trader Joes) that I got specifically to go with the was super yummy and everyone here loved it as well. Sorry, I'd link you to it but can't seem to find it anywhere online. It was chimi...something or other...and all I can say is...WOW. So, next time you are in the mood to make something a little fishy, but oh so wonderful, try this refreshing dish!
