This super simple way to prepare fish basically involves poaching your fish in olive oil. Kind of a sweet, sour, peppery combination that takes less than 15 minutes to make.


Units Scale

1 lb red snapper fillets

1/4 c olive oil

1/2 t sugar

1 1/2 T red wine vinegar

1/3 c raisins

1 1/2 T pine nuts

Fresh ground black pepper



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pat fish dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt.

Oil a baking dish with oil and place fish in it.

Dissolve sugar in the vinegar and pour over fish.

Pour the oil around the fish and then toss the raisins and pine nuts in the oil and place on top of fish.

Grind black pepper over the top if desired and cover with foil.

Bake 10 minutes, uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes more or until fish is flaky.
