HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL OF THE FATHERS AND GRANDFATHERS OUT THERE!  I wish my Father was here to celebrate with me.  ENJOY!

Since this is Father's Day weekend, I decided to share a recipe with you.  I am now on a health kick.  I workout for thirty minutes each day so I can continue to have a piece of fried whatever. Actually I am taking better care of myself now and will be sharing much more healthy ideas. 

Red Snapper Vera Cruz 

Makes 2 servings
·         2 (4-6 ounce) fillets red snapper
·         Juice of 1 lime
·         Tabasco or hot pepper sauce to taste
·         ¼ cup all-purpose flour
·         ½ teaspoon salt
·         ½ teaspoon olive oil
·         1 (16 ounce) jar salsa
·         1 clove garlic, sliced thin
·         ½ cup chicken, fish stock or water
·         ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
·         ¼ cup pimento stuffed green olives
·         1 cup cooked brown rice
·         1 tablespoon minced cilantro
·         1 avocado, sliced thin
·         Lime wedges

·         Wash and pat dry fish fillets. Combine lime juice and hot sauce in a shallow bowl. Add fish fillets and marinade ½ hour.
·         Combine flour, salt, and chili powder together in a shallow bowl.
·         Remove fish from marinade and pat dry with paper towel. Dredge in flour mixture on both sides. Set aside.
·         Heat olive oil in a WearEver Cast Lite Fry Pan over medium heat. Cook the fish on both sides until golden brown. Remove from skillet.
·         Add the salsa, garlic and combine with the broth or water, cumin, oregano and olives. Bring to a simmer.
·         Gently place the fish in the salsa mixture and spoon some salsa over the fish. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes or until heated through.
·         Reserve ¼ cup of the sauce. Spoon and divide remaining sauce between two shallow soup bowls or serving plates. Place ½ cup of rice in center of each plate and top with cooked fish. Spoon reserved sauce over fish and rice and sprinkle cilantro. Serve with avocado slices and lime wedges.

This was in an ad for the Wearever Cast Lite Fry Pan.  I am going to try this since it can be put in the dishwasher and is half the weight of my iron skillet.  Sold at Walmart.
