Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1 Cup(s) beer
2 Cup(s) Water
2 Bay leaves
12 Whole black peppercorns
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Pound(s) Red snapper fillets
3 Ears fresh corn -or-
1 1/2 Cup(s) Canned/frozen corn
2 Red-ripe tomatoes, cut
in thin wedges
1/2 Yellow bell pepper -or-
1/2 Sweet yellow wax pepper -or-
1 Green bell pepper, cut in
thin strips
1/2 Fresh Poblano chile or green
bell pepper cut in thin
1 Fresh hot green chile, such
as Jalapeno or Serrano
finely minced
3 Green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 Cup(s) Hot green salsa or chopped
canned tomatillos
2 Tablespoon(s) Fresh lime juice
1/4 Cup(s) Extra-virgin olive oil
Juice from pickled Jalapenos
2 Tablespoon(s) Minced fresh cilantro if
In a large saucepan, combine beer, water, bay leaves, peppercorns and
salt. Bring to a boil; add fish, then cover and turn off heat. Allow
to cool, covered, about 15 minutes or until fish is opaque throughout.
(Fish cooks as liquid cools; this extra-gentle method of cooking keeps
the fish flesh intact.) Meanwhile, cook fresh corn in boiling water
until tender; drain, then cut kernels from cobs. Combine corn,
tomatoes, bell pepper, poblano chile, hot chiles and green onions; set
aside. Then prepare dressing: whisk together salsa or tomatillos, lime
juice and oil. Taste and adjust heat; if not hot enough (or if you
used tomatillos), add jalapeno juice to taste. Toss dressing with
vegetables and place mixture in a large salad bowl. Drain fish; gently
flake and scatter around edge of bowl. Sprinkle with cilantro, if
desired. Makes 4 servings. NOTE: If you have fresh tomatillos on hand,
you may use them in place of the canned variety. Remove the husks and
stems, then steam fruit about 5 minutes until soft; chop enough to
make 1/4 cup. From the <Hotter Than Hell!>, by Jane Butel, ISBN
