"Perhaps one of the most celebrated Mexican fish dishes, this snapper recipe comes from the pretty seacoast town for which it was named. Use red snapper or rockfish."

Excellent recipe. I used RoTel canned tomatoes with cilantro, lime and chilis. Also added some white wine, simmered to reduce liquid, poured over the fish and baked. Topped with Mexican cheese at the end of baking time. Delicious!
I live in Mexico, so I consider myself semi-knowledgeable when it comes to Mexican tastes. The recipe did not taste very authentic....I've been to Veracruz many times...and the ingredients were there, but the taste was lacking. Also, the cinnamon was wrong! Too much and wrong flavor.
Was not impressed with this recipe. I'm not big on a lot of ingredients smothering my fish, however, I thought my family would enjoy it. They didn't care for it either.
I will start this by saying that I love snapper veracruz and order it often out. Unfortunately I thought the flavor of this was average. It wasn't bad, but I didn't rave either. I personally thought the teaspoon of cinnamon was over powering and the most prodominent thing I tasted in the sauce. If I made this again I would cut way back on the cinnamon. I may make this again with some changes as it was easy to make. Thanks Helena.
This is an easy, light and interesting dish - my husband loves it, and even my one-year old enjoyed a little taste. The sauce is incredible, I could almost eat that by itself!
Very colorful and delicious!
I also topped it with cheese. Pepper Jack.
I was extremely hesitant about putting in the cinnamon, but I did it anyway. BAD IDEA! I'll make it again without the cinnamon and re-review. Please, please, please don't ruin your fish with this recipe. No cinnamon! Look at other Veracruz recipes first. This one is a good basic recipe minus the cinnamon. No cinnamon! Okay, I think I've gotten my point across. If you use the cinnamon you can't say you weren't warned!
