Tropical Red Snapper

1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 scallions -- thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves -- minced and divided
2 teaspoons salt -- divided
1 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper -- divided
4 red snapper fillets - (abt 5 oz ea)
6 tablespoons butter -- divided
1 large onion -- chopped
1 green bell pepper -- chopped
6 plum tomatoes -- chopped
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

In a 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish, combine the lime juice, scallions, half of the minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper; mix well. Place the fish fillets in the mixture, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat and sauté the onion, bell pepper, and remaining 2 garlic cloves for 5 minutes. Add the plum tomatoes, remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until the tomatoes have broken down.

Meanwhile, place the flour in a shallow dish and coat the fish fillets on both sides, discarding the marinade.

In another large skillet, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat and sauté the fish for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until it flakes easily with a fork.

Place the fish on a platter and spoon the tomato mixture over the fillets.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
