Standing at the fish counter at the market the other day I was thinking that I wanted to try something different.
The big sale that day was on Red Snapper so I gave it a try and am I ever glad I did. It is one incredible fish! The texture is silky smooth, moist and meaty with a delicate flavour. Not at all like other fishes that can be dry and flaky. We all really enjoyed it.
I gave it an Asian twist by baking it in the oven with ginger, soy and garlic. This dish is extremely quick to assemble, perfect for a busy weeknight.
Note to self: Try different types of fish more often, your family will thank you for it!
