Spicy Snapper

Tonight's dinner was SO yummy. I love snapper! Especially "spicy snappy snapper". It was delicious, sweet, spicy and medicinal even. It totally helped take my mind off my soreness for awhile. YES, I'm still sore from Monday's sprints. In fact, my pain has just managed to grow!.... I never realized what an all over workout sprints are?!?!

4 red snapper filets
ground cumin, garlic powder, ground chili pepper, cracked black pepper, and sea salt (optional)
-Season fish on both sides with spices, and set aside

2 tsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1/2 anaheim pepper, chopped
jalapeno pepper, minced (depending on your heat thresh-hold)... I only used half!
1/2 to 3/4 can diced tomatoes (organic, low sodium)
2 T lime juice
1/2 C fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

Heat olive oil, and saute garlic, onion, and peppers. When vegetable are soft and start to caramelize, add lime juice. Reduce heat and add tomatoes. Mix well and simmer.

Place seasoned snapper filets in the broiler for about 5-7 minutes on each side. Remove from broiler, place in a baking dish and top with spicy vegetable sauce! Bake for about 10 minutes (350 degrees).... just long enough to cook up a veggie side ... We steamed some yellow squash that we tossed with a sauteed onion and some more fresh cilantro!

OH! Don't forget some creamy avocado slices on top! :-)

This was really tasty!!! Hope you enjoy!
