I used red snapper filets, and coated them with the sauce before cooking. I made the fish on the grill using a smoker box with hickory chips. Came out very nice. Did not use the orange and lemon as I didn't have a whole fish to stuff. Next time will try placing thin slices of the orange and lemon on top of the filets.
