2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
Juice of 2 limes
1 cup long-grain white rice
2 cups water
4 fish fillets (such as snapper, grouper, tilapia), 1 1/2 lb
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 cup white wine (or chicken broth)
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon paprika


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 1 tablespoon oil in 2-quart baking dish.
  • Slice pepper and onion.
  • Chop cilantro. Squeeze juice from limes (about 2 tablespoons).

  2. Coat fish with seasoned salt and place in baking dish, turning to coat with oil (wash hands). Arrange peppers and onions over fish; sprinkle with cilantro.
