    BGreenstone's Note:

    This is a recipe that I came up with one day when I had to cook some Red Snapper with the spare ingredients that I had in my refrigerator. It was amazing the very first time I made it, so I never had to tweak the recipe. The sauce that results from steaming these ingredients is absolutely fantastic - the flavors all blend together to make a truly exquisite dish that's both healthy and delicious. Simply the best fish in a bag I've ever had.
