Adjust oven rack to lower middle position and preheat to 350°F.
Pour two tablespoons olive oil into heavy-bottomed 12-inch stainless steel skillet. Turn heat high. When smoking, add onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions soften and start to blacken around edges, 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat.
Transfer half of onions to medium-sized baking dish along with lime juice. Set fish on top of onions and season with salt and pepper.
Place rest of onions on top of fish, and drizzle with two tablespoons of oil. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake until fish is cooked through (check after 25 minutes and return to oven in 5 minute increments as necessary).
Meanwhile, add cilantro, white wine vinegar, and jalapeños to food processor. Process until purred, scraping down sides with rubber spatula as necessary. With motor running, drizzle in remaining four tablespoons oil. Puree until smooth.
Place heaping tablespoons of cilantro sauce on a plate. Top with fish fillet. Repeat with remaining fillets.
Serve with white rice and lime wedges. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
Recommended wine: Pinot Grigio, Gruener Veltliner, Pinot Noir
Pinot Grigio, Gruener Veltliner, and Pinot Noir are great choices for Fish. Fish is as diverse as wine, so it's hard to pick wines that go with every fish. A crisp white wine, such as a pinot grigio or Grüner Veltliner, will suit any delicately flavored white fish. Meaty, strongly flavored fish such as salmon and tuna can even handle a light red wine, such as a pinot noir. The Chehalem 3 Vineyard Pinot Gris with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 26 dollars per bottle.
Chehalem 3 Vineyard Pinot GrisA blend of three great vineyards, this vivid grape crafts a food-friendly wine, bright and pure. Gray it isn't. The knife-edged acid, with pear, lemon sorbet, spice and jasmine makes your mouth water and your hands shake.
