Chipotle Lime Pacific Snapper Recipe
When I walked into the grocery store on Friday I was thinking about making shrimp from an Ezra Pound Cake recipe. However, the fish counter had Rockfish on special, like a really cheap special. It is local and I had never made it before so I was quickly sold. Apparently Rockfish is also known as Pacific Snapper? News to me, but for $2.95 to feed two people I was very impressed. We were also very impressed when it cooked up. It was buttery in the manner of a sablefish and had a lovely light flavour. I still used the themes from the original recipe and it turned out great, I think it would work well on the grill as well.
