Peanut oil
6 red snapper fillets (about 6 ounces each), skinned
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Tomatillo-Serrano Chile Vinaigrette

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet.  Add the fillets in batches
and cook over moderate heat for 2 minutes.  Turn and cook on the other
side until the fish is opaque throughout, about 3 minutes.  Remove the 
fish to a large warm platter.

Spoon the Tomatillo-Serrano Chile Vinaigrette onto 6 warm dinner plates
and arrange the snapper fillets in the center.  Serve warm.
