For the red snapper or any local fish, watch the way to open the
fish. (Please watch the episode 23 and you can learn the way to open
the fish and remove the bones).
After you take the bone out, add salt, pepper, olive oil, and zest of
lemon to make the fish tasty. (It is better to do this step of
seasoning for the fish for at least 30 minutes before cooking).
Heat the pan very well and then put the fish in. Always start cooking
from the skin side for all types of fish. This is a very important
step. When the skin becomes gold, turn the fish on the other side for
about 3 minutes. (Fish like snapper or fish weighing about 500 to 600
grams could be cooked in the pan).
If the fish is bigger, then it is better to be cooked in the oven.
Prepare The Sauce:
Cut the cherry tomatoes into two halves and chop the onion and
garlic. Heat the pan and add little olive oil and the onion. After 3
minutes of cooking, add the garlic. After 2 minutes, add the
tomatoes, sugar, and some basil
Cook for 15 minutes until the water of the tomatoes evaporate.
Add caper, olives and some basil to enhance the flavor.
When cooked, take the fish out of the pan and put it in a serving
Add the sauce on top and add some basil leaves for decoration.
