After many conversations with seafood-loving friends who rarely adventure away from red snapper and sea bass, I had to succumb to their needs for new recipes with their favorites fish. I had one request for them, to include vegetables in the recipe.
There are several seafood recipes in cookbook and online. Many of them are a bit plain and not too Caribbean-ish tasty. What I mean by that is the use of bold fresh herbs and spices.
Red Snapper is a very common fish in the Caribbean. Many and most of the Caribbean fish recipe are made with Red Snapper. For a good homemade recipe, the fish must be fresh. A good seasoning will also help achieve the right delicious taste we all crave for when vacationing in the Caribbean.
This type of fish is a meaty and delicious fish. Whether grilled, broiled, boiled or roast, the flesh will remain moist.
This recipe has been adapted from Williams-Sonoma One Pot of the Day, by Kate McMillan (Weldon Owen, 2012). The original recipe is prepared with Rockfish, a common name for more than 100 different varieties of bass-like fish.
The snapper is first cleaned with lime, seasoned and then braised with our selection of fresh vegetables. Served with grains, pasta or even root vegetables or provisions, you are sure to have a wonderful dinner any night.
