Fish/Seafood Recipes: Red Snapper Provencal

Red Snapper Provencal
2 Tbsp olive oil
12 oz red snapper, bass, or tilapia fillets, cut into 4 portions
1 1/2 Tbsp garlic, minced (about 3–4 cloves)
1/2 Cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 Cup canned no-salt-added diced tomatoes
1/4 Cup black olives, sliced
1/2 Tbsp anchovy paste (optional)
2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped(or ½ Tbsp dried)
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottom sauté pan.
Add fillets, and sauté over high heat for 4–5 minutes on each side or until each side is golden brown and the fish flakes easily with a fork in the thickest part (to a minimum internal temperature of 145°F).
Remove fillets from the pan, cover to keep warm,and set aside. Drain excess fat from pan, but do not clean.
Add garlic to sauté pan, and cook for about 30 seconds, until it begins to soften.
Do not brown.
Add chicken broth to the pan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add remaining ingredients, and return to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Serve each fish fillet with 1/2 cup of sauce.
