Huachinango Enchilado (Snapper Fillets Cuban Style)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Manami

This is a Cuban variation on a Vera Cruz sauce with red snapper fillets. We enjoyed these very much and have served them both with rice and angel hair pasta - the rice this time won out. This is from 3 Guys from Miami Cook Cuban.

I made this with perch because it was all I had, but it was very tasty. It may have been missing something, but I can't put my finger on it. Either way it was very nice and my family loved it! Thanks.
