What you need:

1 large Florida grouper fillet (approximately 1 lb.)
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small Florida zucchini, chopped into thin rounds
1 Florida carrot, chopped into small rounds
1/2 red Florida pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow Florida pepper, chopped
1 medium Florida onion, chopped
8 Florida cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 1/2 c. tomato juice
1 Tbsp. brown or natural sugar
1 lemon, freshly squeezed
freshly ground pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 tsp. dried sweet basil
1 tsp. kosher salt
What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place the cleaned fish in the middle of a baking pan. Spread 1 Tbsp. of olive oil on fish, making sure to cover both sides. Squeeze the lemon on both sides of the fish and sprinkle with the cracked black pepper.
2. Sauté the chopped vegetables in the remaining olive oil just enough to soften a little and set aside. In a small cup, mix the oregano, basil and salt, and spread on both sides of the fish. Pour the sautéed vegetables over the fish.
3. In a bowl, mix the sugar, ketchup and tomato juice and pour over the fish.
4. Cover and place in the oven until it is done all the way; the flesh should be soft and flaky. Do not overcook. A general rule for cooking fish is 10 min. per inch of thickness.
