Red Snapper for Two

This is a fast and easy recipe plus it’s low fat and healthy. Add a tossed salad and some hard bread and you have a gourmet meal. Plus, the cook can plate the meal from the casserole dish, leaving only two cooking utensils to clean.—Joy Adcock, Amarillo, Texas

    Nice, fresh tasting fish recipe. I was able to easily double for 4.

    Had to alter, only fresh tilapia filets available. Planned to serve with rice but only potatoes available so I sliced them thin and browned in a little oil in covered pan while I was reducing the recipe sauce. Put potatoes on top of sauce (which was on top of fish filets) and then cheese on top and followed the oven time. Result? Crispy, cheesy potato slices on top of a wonderful sauce (made according to recipe) on top of perfectly cooked fish. Fantastic flavors and textures! Will definitely try again following the recipe exactly - sauce is great! But I am also liking my potato add-on variation -- served with a great salad, it was a very satisfying, healthy meal. Got rave reviews.
