  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 pounds grouper or red snapper fillets
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 6 wedges and separated
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained


  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce and lemon juice. Pour 1/4 cup marinade in a shallow dish; add fish. Turn to coat; cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook onion in 1 teaspoon oil for 1 minute. Stir in peppers; cook and stir for about 5 minutes longer. Stir in tomatoes; cook 1-2 minutes longer or until tomatoes are heated through and vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from the heat; keep warm.
  3. Drain fish, discarding marinade in dish. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook fish in remaining oil for about 8 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Arrange two-thirds of pepper mixture on a serving platter; top with fish. Top with remaining pepper mixture and drizzle with reserved marinade. Serve immediately.
