Another Healthy Recipe

My bloggy friend, Fancine is hosting a giveaway on her blog. To enter this giveaway, she has asked for a healthy recipe. She is getting ready to start a healthy blog and I can't wait to see it! I am all about keeping my family healthy! Anyway, I thought I would share one of my favorite healthy recipes here.

Costa Rican-style Snapper with Pineapple, Black Beans, and Rice
.
3/4 c uncooked long grain brown rice
4 Tbsp orange juice
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pinch (about 1/16 tsp) sugar
4 snapper filets (I sometimes use talapia)
1 3/4 c medium salsa
1 can (14.5 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
2 c chopped pineapple
.
1. Preheat oven to 4ooF and cook rice according to package instructions.
.
2. In a large shallow bowl, combine orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, 2 tbsp cilantro, garlic, and sugar, plus salt and pepper to taste. Add snapper fillets and marinate for 15-20 minutes.
.
3. In a 3-quart baking dish, combine rice, salsa, beans, and 1 tbsp cilantro. Place snapper over mixture, overlapping fillets if necessary. Spoon remaining marinade over fish.
.
4. Bake uncovered until fish is cooked through and oaque, about 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cilantro on top and serve.
