Alex's Heavenly Snapper Fillets

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Oolala

An old friend of mine made this for me and I was impressed and kept the "recipe" all these years but there are no amounts (measurments) given so I will see if Zaar will let me add it. If I have to put ingredient amounts, just keep in mind that I guessed.

Really delicious. So many recipes are for red snapper that I just had to try this one. A perfect summer main dish, especially if your cherry tomatoes are beginning to ripen faster than you are using them in salads. My only complaint is that I ate too much and had no room left over for dessert.
