Crusty Red Snapper Recipe

"I made this with Tilapia for my husband and I. We only used 2 fillets, so half of the veggies and toppings was plenty. We both enjoyed it and will definitely be making this one again!"

"Delicious recipe. Lovely to look at and great tasting. We also substituted less expensive tilapia for the red snapper and it was great. Nice way to prepare tilapia."
