    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
