Snapper is a staple in our house here by the ocean. I know the sauce is vague but you can't go wrong. Sometimes I add a little white wine if it seems to thick. The variations are many - roasted red peppers instead of tomatoes - the addition of herbs, etc. You can omit the anchovies if you wish but they add a depth of flavor and I'm sure no anchovy hater would detect them unless they were told.


  • snapper fillets
  • onions
  • tomatoes
  • olives
  • anchovies


Make a basic tomato sauce with the ingredients listed under the fish. Cook the fish seperately in the microwave or the oven and serve topped with the sauce.
