Reviews for Honey-Lime Red Snapper
"This was good. I had never had red snapper before so I was nervous to try it. I served this over a bed of basmati rice that I had cooked in vegetable stock. My only criticism is that I thought it was quite heavy on the lime so I would definitely use less if I were to make it again. I had also added the chili powder into the marinade/sauce rather than sprinkling directly onto the fish"
"Even my husband who doesn't like fish really liked this dish, served with herbed corn on the cob and fresh sliced tomatoes mmmmm!!"
"Not good. I don't know anyone who would like this recipe."
