This is a Mexican fish dish usually called snapper Veracruz after its town of origin. Very simple, tangy and delicious!
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! - 07 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 20 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 16 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
