Creole Red Snapper


· 1 tablespoon olive oil
· 1/4 cup chopped onion
· 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
· 1 garlic clove, minced
· 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can no-salt-added whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped
· 2 teaspoons low-sodium Worcestershire sauce

· 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
· Dash of hot sauce

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, green bell pepper, and garlic; sauté until tender.

Garnish with basil sprigs, if desired, and serve immediately.
