    An easy pan-braised fish dish with traditional Latin American flavors. This is how snapper is served in Colombian restaurants. Serve with boiled potato, boil yuca, rice and beans.

      HA, this is too easy, with delightful results, even though I omitted the coriander due to not hving any on hand!

      We really enjoyed this! The fish was wonderful cooked in the broth and the veggies were excellent as well. I used very little cilantro but loved the oregano on top. I will most certainly make this again! Served aside asparagus for a great dinner. Made for the ZWT for team Emerald City Shakers.

      not bad. will make next time with less cilantro. was overpowering for this dish. I also added some shallots and fresh lime juice to help give some dimension to the dish.
