The fish mixture of prawns, crab and seasonings can be stuffed in the red snapper, or as written in the recipe, piled on top while being cooked.
You can use red mullet if you're unable to find red snapper.
Altered ingredient amounts. Fantastic. Since we are on a low carb diet, we cut the breadcrumbs in half but doubled the crab meat. Cooked on a red hot fire, in 20 minutes we had one of our best meals ever. - 08 Oct 2008
Something else. I thought this was great -- and really easy. I just put the 'stuffing' on top of the fish, and it turned out great. I just had enough fish for two, so now I have leftover stuffing -- I am thinking of using it for stuffed mushrooms. Thanks for the recipe! - 08 Oct 2008
