    O law, was this good! I'm actually drooling while thinking of what next to say. One thing tho'--do you mean dry mustard or prepared mustard? What's the white thing in the snapper?  -  03 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    I would think powdered mustard. Thinking that is a poached egg on top, sounds really yummy.  -  18 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
