This recipe is awesome. I make it all the time. One addition... I melt feta cheese into the sauce and then serve the dish over steamed brown rice. YUM!
good dish, but not exploding with flavor per say. I would def make again. I made the modification with feta and brown rice. I also added some zucchini to sneak in some veg.
My husband and I really loved this dish. Most of all it wasn't just another boring fish recipe. We like food with a little "zing" and this definitely filled the bill. You can't ruin this recipe if you follow it as written. Just make sure you use a pan that's not too large so all the juices and sauce stay close to the fish while cooking.
We are always trying to find a new and delicious way to eat more fish. This recipe is delicious. I thought it would be to spicy for my family but they said it was perfect. I could not find red snapper so substituted tilapia. I made not other changes other than that.
I used Italian flavored stewed tomatoes for extra flavor and reduced the amount of red pepper by half but it was still pretty spicy. I will definitely make it again.
Easy, delicious, didn't need to shop for ingredients, one pan clean-up. Everything I look for in a good weekday dinner. We've used this with other fish and it works great.
I just made this dish tonight. I had to use flounder instead of snapper because the store was out of snapper. However, it was fantastic with flounder! I can't imagine it being any better with snapper, but I'm looking forward to trying it. I followed the recipe exactly (except for the flounder substitution) and it was spicy but not too spicy. Very easy to prepare and not too time consuming. It reminds me of an Italian dish without all the carbs of a typical Italian pasta dish. This will become a weekly meal at my house. Thank you for the fantastic recipe! :)
This was delicious! Based on other comments saying it was too spicy, I reduced the red pepper flakes by 1/4. It was just right. I also added a spoonful of commerical spaghetti sauce to help thicken the sauce. I will definitely make again. I'm planning to make it for a dinner party for five.
