      This was incredible! Next time we make it, we're going to triple or quadruple the vegetables so we can eat the leftovers as a side dish later in the week. This literally was one of my favorite recipes so far on this website!!! Thank you so much for posting it!

      Definitely a keeper. I loved the marinade. So easy, but tasted like I worked all day on it. Thanks for sharing.

      I made this using salmon instead of red snapper. I also used preserved lemon in place of regular lemon. DH thoroughly enjoyed this dish. Made for NA*ME Tag
