I bought some fresh rockfish (west coast version of red snapper) and prepared it using this recipe from Paula's The Lady & Sons, Too! I cut the amount of butter in half and used red bell pepper and a mixture of green and yellow onions. The original recipe calls for baking the fish 8 minutes then turning and baking another 8 minutes ~ I think this helped the fish absorb the lovely vegetables a bit more. Served on mashed potatoes with a spinach salad. So glad you had already posted, Valerie, so I won't ever lose this delicious recipe!
