 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Whole         fish such as snapper, bream -- porgy, sea bass
      1/2  Cup           dry white wine
    1      Cup           gaeta olives
    2                    jalapenos, seeded -- and chopped
    1 1/2  Cups          basic tomato sauce
    1      Head          fennel, sliced paper thin
                         fronds set aside -- chopped
    1      Bunch         fresh oregano -- leaves only
    4      Tablespoons   extra virgin olive oil
 
 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
 
 Clean and gut fish, remove top and bottom fins, scale and remove gills.
 Stand fish up in a shallow casserole, just large enough to hold the fish.
 Pour wine over fish and add olives, jalapenos, tomato sauce, fennel and
 oregano. Drizzle fish with olive oil, place in oven and cook until just
 cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove, sprinkle with fennel fronds
 and serve immediately.
 
 (An excellent contorno for this dish would be tiny potatoes, roasted with
 garlic and rosemary.)
