Island Red Snapper with Cherry Tomatoes

4 fillets of Red Snapper, about 4 ounces each
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, or other neutral oil
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Pat the fish dry gently with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.  Heat 1 tablespoon of the grapeseed oil in a nonstick pan over medium high heat until hot but not smoking.  Place the fish in the pan, skin side down and cook for 3 minutes or until fish no longer sticks to the pan.  Flip the fish, reduce the heat to medium low and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove the cooked fish from the pan, and let rest on a paper towel for a few minutes.  In the same pan, cook the tomatoes, stirring gently, for 1 or 2 minutes, just until they barely begin to soften.  Add the parsley and lime juice and then remove from heat.  Top the fish with some of the cherry tomatoes to serve.
