Sofrito is a classic Spanish seasoning used for many different dishes. We serve it with fresh fish for a light yet flavour-packed meal.


Uncooked snapper fillet(s)

1 pound(s), four 4-oz pieces

Olive oil

2 tsp(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

1 large, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)

Green pepper(s)

1 large, chopped (about 1 cup)

Sweet red pepper(s)

1 small, chopped (about 3/4 cup)

Garlic clove(s)

4 clove(s), large, chopped (about 4 Tbsp)

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

¼ pinch, freshly ground

Fresh parsley

2 tbsp(s), fresh, chopped, for garnish


¼ cup(s)


  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Sauté snapper until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 minutes per side. Remove fish from skillet; set aside and keep warm.
  2. Heat oil in same skillet. Add onions and peppers and cook, stirring and shaking pan, until vegetables are quite soft, wilted and browned, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add water, scraping bottom of pan to release browned bits. Season with salt and pepper and serve over fish; garnish with parsley. Yields 1 filet and about 1/2 cup of vegetable mixture per serving.
