Baked Red Snapper in Dill Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CaribbeanQueen

My family adores fresh Red Snapper and we are so lucky this time of year to buy freshly caught fish from the local fisherman. This simple recipe compliments the fish and is so quick and easy to make. This also works nicely with halibut.
