Snap up Some Snapper

Whenever I hear the words “red snapper,” I think of a sassy fish with attitude. Actually, that’s not so far off. Red Snapper has a faintly nutty flavor and a firm texture, which is great for picking up subtle spices, as well as those in-your-face hot chili sauces! It’s a little pricier than trout or tilapia, but well worth it, if you ask me.

Red Snapper with Asian Noodles is a fabulous, refreshing change from the ho hum fish dinner. And it’s quick too. After you let the fish marinate in a slightly sweet, spicy and citrusy mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, honey, garlic powder, salt and cayenne, you bake it for 15 minutes – and there you have it. Serve with lo-mein noodles spiked with sesame oil, soy sauce, lime juice and lightly pickled cukes.

Now there’s a snappy supper!
