Honey-Lime Red Snapper Recipe

Honey-Lime Red Snapper Recipe

“If you can’t find snapper, you can substitute most any firm white fish. And if you can’t find key lime juice, use regular lime juice.” —Ken Hulme, Venice, Florida note: as reader suggests, regular lime juice can be used if you can't find key lime juice

  • 1/2 cup honey
