Hey, what the heck – it’s not Sunday? I’ll tell you, what’s going on. I woke up this morning and wanted some fresh seafood. I had big ideas but no ingredients. I love the Fish Peddler East, in Fort Lauderdale, but it’s so far to go from here. When I maintained an office in Fort Lauderdale, I would stop in every Thursday evening. But now, with no office on the east side, I don’t get over there so much. So, I headed over to Whole Foods Market. For my neighborhood, they have the best, freshest, most reliable seafood. For the most part, they are a bit pricey, but I like to go and see what’s on sale and then use the zen approach. I went, and they had yellow tail snapper on sale.
YAY! I love snapper! My favorite way to fix any snapper is what I call, “Margarita Snapper”. Basically, you fix a margarita, add some olive oil and seasonings and use it as a marinade, basting sauce and drizzle. I love this recipe and I have been wanting to post it here for others to enjoy. So even though it’s Saturday, you’re getting my Margarita Snapper.
The menu I came up with to go with the snapper was:
- Margarita Snapper
- Red, Yellow, Orange, Green Peppers and Onions in the Grill Basket
- Herb Roasted Red Skin Potatoes
- For Dessert – Hey! It’s not Sunday! I don’t do dessert if it’s not Sunday! Ok, David had an ice cream sandwich from the freezer.
Check out those pepper and onions! They are so beautiful and trust me they are as delicious as they look. I marinate them in the same marinade that I made for the fish, tossed them in the grill basket and grilled them until the edges have that beautiful char. You are going to love these!
