- 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
- 1/2 medium sweet red pepper, julienned

- 2. In the same pan, saute the red pepper and onions in remaining oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes. Bring to a boil.

Reviews for Mediterranean-Style Red Snapper
"Very flavorful recipe! I used tilapia loins instead of the red snapper and the family loved it; I can't wait to make it again!"
"I love red snapper, but my third son is deathly allergic to seafood, so this is one we will not serve if he's here for dinner. It's delicious though, and one we'd love to have way more often."
