Grilled Snapper with Red Pepper Sauce
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish.Advertisement
To prepare Red Pepper Sauce: In a small skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add sweet pepper; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomatoes, 1 tablespoon of the vinegar, the salt, and cayenne pepper. Cook about 5 minutes or until tomatoes soften, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Return sauce to skillet; keep warm over low heat.
In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon oil, and the snipped or dried basil; brush onto the snapper fillets.
Place fish on the lightly greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. If desired, cover grill grate with greased foil before adding fish. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling.
Serve fish with red pepper sauce. If desired, garnish with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil sprigs.
