- Heat a skillet with olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion. Cook, stirring, until the onions are tender, about 3 minutes. Add the diced roma tomatoes, jalapeno, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 3 more minutes.
- Add the canned tomatoes and reduce heat to a low simmer. Stir in the olives, capers, dried oregano, lime juice and parsley. Cover and let cook, simmering, while you prepare the fish.
- Season fish with salt and pepper.
- Heat a non-stick skillet with oil over medium-high heat. When very hot, place fish filets skin side down and press down with the back of a spatula to flatten the filet and the skin is flush with the skillet (it tries to curl). Cook fish, pressing occasionally with the spatula, until the fish is nearly opaque and cooked through, with just a small raw area on the very top, about 6 minutes. Using a sturdy spatula, carefully flip the snapper and continue cooking until the top is cooked through and golden brown, about 3 more minutes. Remove fish from pan and let rest on a wire rack for 2-3 minutes, while the you prepare the zucchini and squash.
- Using the same skillet with the heat over medium-high, add one additional tbsp of olive oil. Add the zucchini, squash, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until just tender and golden on the edges, 5 to 6 minutes.
- To serve, scatter the sauteed squash and zucchini across a platter. Top with the fish and ladle desired amount of the sauce over the fish. Serve with lime wedges. Enjoy!
VERACRUZ-STYLE RED SNAPPER
I like red snapper for this, but any white, flaky fish will work. By the way, many Veracruz-style fish recipes call for pickled jalapenos, but I think there's plenty of acidity in this from the lime and tomatoes, so I like the fresh pepper a little more.

RED SNAPPER VERACRUZANA (HUACHINANGO A LA VERACRUZANA)
The Mexican state of Veracruz stretches along the Gulf Coast like the graceful tentacle of a sea creature. Within the boundaries formed by the warm coastal waters to the east and the Sierra Madre Oriental to the west is an enticing pot-pourri of cultures. Long before Europeans arrived in Mexico through what is now the port city of Veracruz, the area occupied by the modern-day state of Veracruz was populated by the Olmecs, as well as Huastecs and Totonacs. The latter were famous for their cultivation of vanilla and curing the pods for culinary use, adding a unique flavor to many of their dishes. The use of acuyo, a herb also known as hoja santa, also characterized the indigenous cooking of the area. The staple food triumvirate of corn, beans and squash was further supplemented by a variety of tropical fruits, thanks to the area's temperate-to-tropical climate. In addition to the chiles, tomatoes and avocadoes so important in the Mexican cooking, papaya, mamey and zapote were cultivated. These are very popular today in the licuados and helados - milk shakes and ice cream - so dear to the hearts of jarochos. This variety and abundance was given a further culinary boost with the arrival of the Spaniards, who introduced herbs such as parsley, thyme, marjoram, bay laurel and cilantro, as well as many of the spices that would later characterize Veracruz cooking. A combination of saffron, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper was pre-mixed and sold to flavor fish empanadas. The Spaniards also brought wheat, rice, almonds, olives and olive oil, garlic and capers. The latter three are essential ingredients in what is perhaps the most famous specialty of the region, Huachinango a la Veracruzana, red snapper in a spicy tomato sauce.

SNAPPER A LA VERACRUZANA
In Cuba we used to eat this type of fish a lot. Chef Norman Van Aken, owner of Norman's restaurant here in Miami, is the creator of this recipe, he prepares snapper in the syle of Veracruz, Mexico and has added raisins. Calraisins.org is where I found this wonderful snapper recipe. In Cuban dishes they use raisins quite often, mixing the sweet with the savory.
