    Beautiful BC's Note:

    This is a famous dish from the Gulf of Mexico. It's easy and flavourful; smothered in a bold sauce of tomatoes, olives, capers & chile peppers. Serve with crusty bread, green salad and a a crisp, cold, dry white wine. Found this years ago in magazine. **you can make with any white fish fillet Update June15/07 - I just made this again and I think I like it better using just a wee bit more wine. Little more than 1/3 of a cup but not as much as a 1/2 cup seemed to pull the flavours out better and made for a nicer sauce.

      Delicious, healthy, easy to make. I added a sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro at the end. Served it with rice and black beans, and a few slices of avocado. Couldn't find any snapper at the market, but they had some nice, fresh orange roughy, so that's what I used.

      Loved this version! It was a beautiful dish and absolutely delicious, not to mention healthy! I used cod and added some red and yellow pepper strips, sprinkled with chopped oregano. Thank you for posting!

      oh gosh this was really good! as soon as I saw this I new I would love it as it has all of my favorite ingredients (olives, capers and jalapeno peppers!) I did a few amount adjustments and used 1 tablespoon each butter and oil I did not measure exactly so I might have used a little more, also added in a pinch of cayenne pepper for even more heat, I use that in just about everything! thank you for another great recipe Deb, I served it with coleslaw and crusty bread for a wonderful dinner DH and myself totally enjoyed!
