Transfer to a saucepan, season with salt and pepper and heat through just before serving. Sprinkle snapper with oregano, salt and pepper. Lightly coat a non-stick skillet with vegetable spray. Saute fish over medium-high heat until cooked, but not falling apart, about 4 minutes on each side.

Presentation: Spoon a puddle of salsa onto 4 dinner plates and place snapper on top of sauce. Arrange line wedges on or around the fish; garnish with sprigs of cilantro and serve.
