This recipe comes from Gloria, one of my online foodie friends who has a great blog with all kinds of original recipes, not just seafood. When I saw this one I just had to ask permission to reprint.

As with most good seafood recipes, this is simple yet elegant, for more great recipes like this visit Gloria at her blog. Enjoy.

4 halibut or red snapper fillets

1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

2 jalapeno peppers finely minced seeds and ribs removed

3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

salt and pepper

Cajun seasoning (optional)


Mix all ingredients, except fish, salt and pepper, and Cajun seasoning together in a ziploc bag. Add the fillets and shake mixing well. Marinate in the fridge, turning once or twice for 20 minutes.

Remove fillets, discard marinade. Season fillets with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Sprinkle the fillets with a little cajun seasoning and broil on high for 6 or 7 minutes. Check for doneness. The fillets should be opaque in the center.

Squeeze a little lime juice on the fillets when serving.
