    The Flying Chef's Note:

    This recipe can be made with snapper fillets rolled up or baked whole snapper. I have made it both ways, I made it with fillets last night. The stuffing amount will work with a whole snapper. It will vary when using individual fillets, depending on the size of the fillet you buy. I made the stuffing for 4 fillets of about 300g each fillet, because sometimes all you can buy are huge fillets, I buy 2, stuff and roll them and then just chop in half to serve.

    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a pan and saute mushrooms and celery a few minutes until softened. Add prawns, onions, herbs and pineapple saute a couple of minutes more.
    2. 2
      If baking whole fish cut a slit lengthwise down the centre of the fish starting and ending 2 inches from each end, be careful not to cut all the way through, creating a pocket. Stuff sauteed mixture into snapper, reserving 11/2 Tablespoons. Pour lime and orange juices over fish, bake in preheated oven approximately 30 Min's at 180c, or until fish is cooked through.
    3. 3
      If using fillets, reserve 11/2 tablespoons of stuffing, divide remainder of mixture equally, down the centre of each fillet, top to bottom , Roll each fillet up and secure with tooth picks. Pour lime and orange juices over fish, bake in preheated oven approximately 30 Min's at 180c, or until fish is cooked through.
    4. 4
      Mince the reserved stuffing and set to one side.
    5. 5
      Mix cornflour with a little water. Heat sherry, pepper and zest in a pan add a very small amount of cornflour to slightly thicken, add cream, stock and minced stuffing.
    6. 6
      When snapper is cooked, remove fish and keep warm. Pour pan liquid into sauce add cornflour and stir until sauce boils and thickens.
    7. 7
      To serve: If whole snapper, place fish on serving plate top with a couple of slices of pineapple drizzle a little sauce over and keep the rest in gravy jug.
    8. 8
      If individual fillets place on plate and pour sauce over I served mine with wild rice and buttery carrots and sugar snap peas.
