      This was good! My husband and I do not normally like fish (even though we live in the Pacific NW, where there is some of the best seafood around), but we liked this! The spices were a bit over- powering for our taste, so I will probably cut all spice measurements in half next time. However, it was a fun, easy way to sneak some good-for-you fish into our diet, without overwhelming our non-fish-loving palettes!

      Great recipe. I used one of the foil baking bags and just used one large filet. Had to adjust the baking time to 25 minutes, and it was perfect. Since I didn't have a whole snapper, I did adjust the amounts of everything, but other than that I prepared this just as written. Will make again.

      I did not care for this recipe. I cook. Everyday. Snapper was so underdone I had to put it back in the oven for - I don't know, I've started at 15 minutes.Trying now to keep my red beans and rice and corn on the cob warm. Will never make this again.
