Directions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the shallot and garlic, and cook for 30 seconds. Pour in the vodka, and simmer for 1 minute. Add the lemon juice, lime juice, fish sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, fennel seeds, basil, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon orange zest, and cream. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue to simmer until the sauce has reduced by half, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the linguine, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, season the snapper fillets with salt and pepper, then dredge in the flour. Shake off the excess, and set aside. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the snapper fillets on both sides in the hot oil until nicely browned, and no longer transparent in the center, about 4 minutes per side.
  4. To serve, toss the drained linguine with half of the sauce, and divide onto 4 plates. Place a snapper fillet onto each plate, and ladle on the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon orange zest to garnish.

We actually cooked the marinated snapper on the grill tonight so didn't mess with the flour etc. The only thing that we added to the sauce was some garlic. Turned out very very good. Thanks for the post.

Too strong and citrusy.

I took a few liberties with this. I used salmon because it's the only fish I had on hand. I cubed and pan sautéed, skipped the flour. When I pulled out ingredients for my dinner I noticed I was short of fish sauce. Since both my intended recipes used it I had to portion what I had left. I used about a tablespoon for this. After simmering sauce I dumped it in the blender and used half and half instead of cream. This was just fantastic! Every bite was a symphony on the tongue, each element is available and noticeable yet blends together to a fantastic result. This recipe would be well suited to anyone that doesn't really care for the taste of fish as the other flavors really explode and hide any fish flavor.

EXCELLENT! I left out the shallots because I forgot to buy them and used brown flour. Really is restaurant quality.

Other than omitting the flour, I made this exactly as written, which is quite unusual for me. I fried the fish on the burner beside my barbeque to avoid the house smelling like fish for days. It was very flavorful and my husband said it had a gourmet feel. I'm going to try the sauce on noodles with roast chicken this weekend. Thanks for the recipe.

It was too citrusy... followed measurements for 2 servings correctly but perhaps the lemon juice, lime juice, and grated orange peels should be halved.

I have gotten alot of recipes off this site and all have been excellent but I did not care for this recipe at all. The fish sauce was overpowering and it has too much citrus flavor. It was a total waste of good fish. Unedible !!

This sauce was excellent with very strong flavor. I used salmon (because it was on sale) and rice instead of linguine. Also, I omitted fennel seeds and thyme because I didn't have them. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and I was very pleased.
