Baked Snapper

1 Whole fish such as snapper, -bream, porgy, sea bass
1/2 c Dry white wine
1 c Gaeta olives
2 Jalapenos, seeded, and chopped
1 1/2 c Basic tomato sauce
1 Head fennel, sliced paper thin, fronds set aside, chopped
1 bn Fresh oregano, leaves only
4 tb Extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Clean and gut fish, remove top and bottom fins, scale and remove gills. Stand fish up in a shallow casserole, just large enough to hold the fish. Pour wine over fish and add olives, jalapenos, tomato sauce, fennel and oregano. Drizzle fish with olive oil, place in oven and cook until just cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove, sprinkle with fennel fronds and serve immediately.

(An excellent contorno for this dish would be tiny potatoes, roasted with garlic and rosemary.)
