  • 6 (6-ounce) grouper fillets
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons grated lime rind
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups thinly sliced onion (about 1 large)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pitted green olives
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced jalapeño pepper

  1. Rub both sides of fillets with garlic; sprinkle with salt. Arrange fillets in a single layer in a large shallow dish. Add lime rind and juice, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until golden. Stir in olives and next 6 ingredients (olives through tomatoes). Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in capers. Remove from pan.
