Snapper with Vegetable Medley Recipe

Here are three savory items from one recipe. It's my typical Friday dinner when a quick delicious meal is the order of the day. The herbed rice perfectly complements the colorful veggie stir-fry and tender fish fillets. -Mary Ann Palestino of Brooklyn of New York
