    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!
