  • 4 red snapper fillets, about 4 oz (125 g) each
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 3 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 8 Niçoise olives, pitted and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers
  • 1 tablespoon minced anchovies
  • 1/4 cup (1/3 oz/10 g) chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup (1/3 oz/10g) chopped fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley
  • 1/2 lemon, cut into 4 wedges
  • 4 fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley sprigs


  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Place the snapper fillets in a shallow glass baking dish and top with the lemon juice and pepper.
  3. To make the sauce, in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, olives, capers, anchovies, basil, oregano and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the sauce over the fillets and top with the chopped parsley. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until the fish just separates when pressed with a fork, about 30 minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
  5. To serve, divide among 4 individual plates. Top each with a lemon wedge and a parsley sprig.
