Grilled Red Snapper

2.2

This grilled red snapper can be made in a flash and has a great blend of spices in it. I totally love the way it looks and really enjoyed grilling this whole snapper. Its a great dish for a BBQ Party and your guests are surely gonna fall in love with this moist & flavorful fish 🙂

Red snapper is a lovely fish and since its locally available here, i love it even more for its freshness. There are so many ways of grilling your fish at home. And i love experimenting with the marinades as each one has its unique taste.

My blog will be turning one soon. And since my first post was a seafood – Fish Balls, i decided to end the year with a seafood too. Do try this recipe and leave me a feedback. I will be glad to hear from you.

Enjoy!

Love, Priti
