Curried Red Snapper

"My husband and daughter, who don't usually care for fish, love it prepared this way," remarks Lynette Kerslake of Corbett, Oregon. "A tasty curry sauce baked over the fish makes the delicious difference."

    Simple recipe, but just too much onion flavor for my family. Maybe replacing the milk in this recipe for coconut milk would help balance the flavors. Won't be a repeat in my kitchen though.

    Excellent recipe! My husband and one year old son gobbled it up. Like a previous review stated, there didn't seem to be enough sauce so the next time, I will make more of the sauce. I served it over some rice that I had cooked w/ some peas and carrots mixed in and it was great!

    This recipe turned me on to Curry, bigtime! Sauce is delicious, although use more to make more as this recipe doesnt call for enough sauce. But, my bf actually made sure EVERYTHING was off the plate and kept complimenting me. Great fish recipe because its differaunt.
