Huachinango veracruzano (even better!)

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Red snapper fillets
2 tablespoons Lime juice
1 cup Chopped onion
2 \N Tomatoes, chopped
1 \N Clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 \N Jar (2 oz) sliced pimientos
2 \N Jalapenos, sliced
16 \N Green olives
1 tablespoon Capers
3 tablespoons Sherry
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Chili powder
¼ teaspoon Oregano
¼ teaspoon Pepper
⅛ teaspoon Cinnamon

Note: 2 lb. cod, haddock, halibut or yellow pike fillets can be substituted for the red snapper fillets. But then, it will be "Something-else Veracruzano".

Preheat oven to 450. Place fish, skin side down, on a platter. Pour lime juice over fillets. Saute onion, tomatoes and garlic in oil. Stir in remaining ingredients, except fish and lime wedges. Cook, uncovered, over medium high heat 5-8 minutes, stirring until thickened. Tear off four 12x18 inch sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil. Divide fish into 4 servings; center each portion on lower half of the sheet of foil. Top each serving with ½ cup sauce. Fold upper half of foil over food, meeting bottom edges of foil. Seal all three edges. Allow space for heat circulation and expansion. Place packets on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. To serve, transfer packets to dinner plates; cut an X in the top of each, fold back edges.
