Recipe by Hey Jude
This is spicy, tasty and easy. Adapted from 'A Spoonful of Ginger', one of my favorite Nina Simonds cookbooks. The original calls for cod, I use orange roughy, and I also cut down the amount of red onions for my family's taste....add more if you like. This is good with steamed rice and crusty bread.
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 large red onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 large green pepper, chopped
- 2 1⁄2 cups peeled seeded and coarsely chopped tomatoes
- 1 1⁄2 cups rice wine or 1 1⁄2 cups sake

- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
