  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Red snapper fillets 6 (Good Size, Fresh)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  White onion 1 Medium, finely chopped
  Garlic cloves 2 Large, minced

  Fresh lime 1 , juiced
  Ground mexican oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Canned jalapeno chili 2 , seeded and cut into very fine strips

Directions

1 Heat half of the oil in a large frying pan. Season the fillets with salt and fry until golden on each side. Remove to a warm plate and cover.
2 Add the rest of the oil to the pan and saute the onion and garlic until they are translucent. Add the tomatoes, lime juice, oregano and chiles, and cook until flavors blend, about 10 minutes.
