    Hard to get red snapper in VT, any suggestions for another fish?

    Orange roughy is very similar. We were going to use it, but found red snapper.

    I found this rather bland. :(

    My son and I loved this. I used a jalapeno and steelhead trout, because that’s what I had. Excellent flavor combo.


    Not my favorite recipe – I think it needs more fat, serve it with avocado next time?


    I agree, this recipe came out very bland, needs stronger flavor somewhere. I will replace it with something else if it comes up again. The Beauty of this site!

    I liked it! I added more lemon than what the recipe called for. And plenty of seasonings.
    No lime, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro or peppers, though. Didn’t have them here. And I put a bunch of yellow onion slices on top because I misread the instructions, lol. It turned out great! Not bland at all.

    2 red snapper fillets
    1 tbsp olive oil for pan
    1 1/2 lemons (juiced with pulp)
    1/3 of a large yellow onion
    1 tbsp Chili powder
    Other seasonings to taste :)

    Coat pan in olive oil
    Marinate fillets in juice, seasonings, and chili pepper. 10 min. Flip occasionly.
    Throw yellow onions on top and put in oven. 30 minutes.

    Also, I put a portion in tubaware and it tasted more savory 10 minutes later than my first portion.
