Red Snapper with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Capers (fish)
by James Belardo 

Inspired by our Pork Chops with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Capers recipe, we felt the sun-dried tomatoes and capers would complement the mild flavor of fish. So, off to the fish market to get red snapper.

Ingredients
2 red snapper fillets
flour for dredging
2-3 (5-6 halves) Sun-dried tomato (sliced thin)
1/4 onion slivered
2 cloves garlic diced
4-6 tbsp olive oil
1 cup white wine (pinot grigio)
1 tablespoon Butter
1 Lemon (juice)
lemon zest
1/4 cup brined capers, drained
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional
salt and pepper – to taste
Flat-leaf Parsley 

Marinade 
1. Marinate the fish in 1/3 cup white wine and 3 tbsp olive oil for about 1/2 hour,
2. Remove the fish from the marinade (save marinade) and pat dry with paper towels.
3. Dredge the fish in flour, salt and pepper
