With the summer months winding down, we slowly take our outdoor cooking back indoors and what can be better then a healthy fish recipe to get the fall season underway. I continue to experiment with fish recipes and took a stab at some pacific snapper, which is a firm white fish that is often substituted for halibut. This recipe involves quite a bit of seasoning and a topping of my favourite sauteed vegetables, which are onion and garlic, it turns this into a beautiful dish that your palate will enjoy. You will want to use some heavy duty foil to place the washed snapper fillets onto and make sure to cut enough, so that you will be able to tightly seal the fish. A large skillet will be required to saute your vegetables and if you enjoy more then just onion and garlic be sure to add them all at the same time to skillet. When it comes to seasoning, the sky is the limit, sea salt and black pepper is a must but this mix of seasoning is enjoyable, unless your really anti something I would use the status quo.
