This was a highly rated recipe that I found on the Safeway website, posted by Kiki Hahn (though the allrecipes site is credited for the photo). It's a recipe for sea bass simmered in a delicious tomato and white wine sauce with onions and capers for a little flavor kick. The posting chef suggests serving it with rice pilaf.
