Red snapper fillets are set on top a mound of linguine, which has been tossed in an orange-zested cream sauce. A deliciously fresh, yet rich dish. Serve with a crisp green side salad.
If red snapper fillets aren't available at your local supermarket, ask at your local fishmonger.
We actually cooked the marinated snapper on the grill tonight so didn't mess with the flour etc. The only thing that we added to the sauce was some garlic. Turned out very very good. Thanks for the post. - 06 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I took a few liberties with this. I used salmon because it's the only fish I had on hand. I cubed and pan sautéed, skipped the flour. When I pulled out ingredients for my dinner I noticed I was short of fish sauce. Since both my intended recipes used it I had to portion what I had left. I used about a tablespoon for this. After simmering sauce I dumped it in the blender and used half and half instead of cream. This was just fantastic! Every bite was a symphony on the tongue, each element is available and noticeable yet blends together to a fantastic result. This recipe would be well suited to anyone that doesn't really care for the taste of fish as the other flavors really explode and hide any fish flavor. - 14 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
EXCELLENT! I left out the shallots because I forgot to buy them and used brown flour. Really is restaurant quality. - 18 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
