This is a slightly alterd recipe from Epicurious. The spicy hot topping makes a nice change for baked fish.
- 14 ounces red snapper fillets
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup drained canned diced tomatoes with green chilies
- 1⁄2 cup diced tomato (Italian or Roma)
- 1 large tangerine, peeled, seeded and sections cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1⁄3 cup green onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- fish herbs (optional)
- almonds, as garnish (optional)
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
- Coat the Red Snapper on both sides with some of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

I made this last night, and my husband and I loved it. I cut the salt in half, and used garlic salt rather than regular salt. I also had to substitute a tangelo - there were no tangerines at the store. I served it over rice pilaf, and it is quite simply the best recipe I've found on the site so far.
What a fabulous, simple recipe for fish. I used lemon and lime juice instead of the tangerine and red snapper for the fish, extra cilantro rather than fish herbs. Then I served it in warm tortilla shells as fish tacos - it is brilliant, a must try!
Quite enjoyed this one. I couldn't find diced tomatoes with chillis so added some crushed red pepper flakes. Also used cut up orange pieces as tangerines weren't available. I thought the fruit would be weird but was really a nice addition!
