1 cup tomato, seeded, chopped
1 cup leeks, thinly sliced
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped (I used red bell pepper instead)
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
4 red snapper fillets (6 ounces each), boned and skinned (I used flounder fillets. You can also use tilapia and other flat fish fillets)
1/2 cup coarse bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup plain potato chips, crushed (I will substitute Ritz cracker or increase bread crumbs)
