Summer Snapper (with Tomatoes, Onions, and Oregano)

When you are in the middle of a move or renovation, simple is best. But the simplest form of food (albeit not the healthiest) seems to be eating out or takeaway. Seems okay right? Well, after a week or more, home cooking and fresh tastes are what the palate craves. So, I went to the market, picked up a couple of ingredients, and made an amazing, easy snapper. Summery and fresh, it hit all the right notes.

Oh, and dinner on the deck? Priceless.

Summer Snapper (with Tomatoes, Onions, and Oregano)
Serves 2

2 filets of Fresh Snapper
Olive Oil
1/2 cup Onion, chopped
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes, cut in halves
Salt and Pepper
2 tbsp Fresh Oregano, chopped
2 tbsp Butter
Juice of 1 Lemon

Drizzle some olive oil into a pan and heat over medium high heat.

Season the snapper filets on both sides with salt and pepper. Place gently into the hot pan and sear on both sides (about 1-2 minutes on each side until browned). Remove the snapper from the pan and set aside.

Add another drizzle of olive oil to the pan.  Add the onions and tomatoes. Cook until the onions have softened, about 5 minutes. Toss in the oregano.

Add the fish filets back into the pan. Add the butter and the lemon juice and cook until the butter is melted.  Serve with rice, a salad, or whatever side dishes you like. Enjoy!
