Delicious, easy & great served over rice. A bit too salty, so I would add less salt to the fish next time since the capers provide enough salty flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Since finding this recipe i have made it 4 times! It is super easy and equally as delicious. Highly recommended. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good! Works with any other type of white fish as well like swordfish or mahi.. You can add a tablespoon of butter at the end to thicken the sauce a bit. Very tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had some Red Snapper filets I needed to use and didn't want anything too complicated for a quick meal. This dish was simple to make with not a lot of complicated ingredients, but sure packed a LOT of flavor! Definitely a dish you could "wow" guests with as well. Will keep this recipe in my "repeater" card file. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was too easy to make and I loved it. I made just enough for 1 meal for dinner and I can't wait to make it for my husband when he's back from travelling. I used bottled garlic out of convenience. Fresh garlic is the way to go. Thanks Rachael! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was my first time cooking red snapper. I did really enjoy this recipe. I did over cook the fish some, and I had a hard time reducing the wine. But it turned out good! I added crushed red pepper for a bite. i will probably make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
