To Prepare

To prepare the sauce, add oil to a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, bell pepper, garlic, bay leaves, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir for about 5 minutes until onion becomes soft and translucent.

Crush tomatoes with your hands and add them, with their juice, to the skillet. Add olives, jalapenos and capers. Simmer for about 10 minutes until sauce thickens. Stir in flat leaf parsley and squeeze of lime. Adjust seasoning. This can be made a day ahead. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Preheat oven to 425°.  Season snapper fillets with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lime juice. Spray a large baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spread 3 tablespoons of sauce on the bottom of the dish. Arrange fish on top of sauce. Spoon the remaining sauce over fish. Bake, uncovered, for about 15-18 minutes, until the fish is opaque.
