Red Snapper With Olive Salsa and Green Beans

"A Rachael Ray recipe. She suggests using the good quality, large green olives, often found in the deli section of the grocery store. I would suggest serving this meal with a green salad and rice."

    Fabulous! Loved the seasoning on the fish, and loved the olive salsa. My green beans were a bit tough cooked as posted, but the ones I left in the skillet with the heat turned off were perfect! The beans soaked up the butter flavor, and were just the right crispness. Thanks for a delicious lunch today!


Hello! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids. I love to read, have fun with family and friends, stay active with: running; soccer; golf; biking; hiking; and gardening. I love to travel. I'm looking forward to more international travel someday. Cooking has become a passion for me. I love to read cookbooks, watch the Food Network, and try new recipes. I have way too many cookbooks! A few of my favorites are: Barefoot Contessa (any - but especially 'Family Style'),Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals 2, Roasting by Barbara Kafka, Beyond Parsley & The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook. I try to carefully choose recipes that I think my family will enjoy, which is why most of my ratings are 3-5 stars. Happy cooking!
