Grilled Snapper Vera Cruz

Grilled Snapper Vera Cruz

Ready in 45 minutes

An amazing sauce to go atop any fish really. I also have used over pasta and received rave reviews. Add a little cornstarch and water if you'll be putting it over pasta or rice.

"Fresh snapper is plentiful here on the Gulf Coast so this recipe is a real winner. We like it over some Texmati rice.
The picture by Susan is truly wonderful also. "

Very good recipe. However I made it with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. The sauce also works well with thin bone in pork chops. Yum!

Looks awesomely yummy! However, the cuisine should be Mexico, not Argentina... ;-) (Couldn't find how to change it.)

I grilled fresh snapper in my smoker using oak and a bit of hickory. This recipe is a real winner!

Fresh snapper is plentiful here on the Gulf Coast so this recipe is a real winner. We like it over some Texmati rice. The picture by Susan is truly wonderful also.

Thanks so much for this recipe. It's absolutely delicious! Next time, we will probably try it over pasta.
