1 Can of Diced Tomatoes (small 398ml)
2 Tbsp Capers (chopped)

  • Preheat Oven to 400F
  • In a medium skillet, heat olive oil and saute red onion until tender, about 5 mins. Then add the garlic and saute for 1 min more. Add the diced tomatoes, capers, black olives, chili flakes and chopped parsley. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 mins.
  • Next, spread 1/2 cup of the sauce into an 11x7 “ baking dish (greased). Arrange the snapper fillets in a single layer in this baking dish. Season snapper with a little salt and pepper. Drizzle lemon juice over the snapper fillets, and then cover with the remainingsauce over them.
