Published by

WHEN SANTA BARBARA RED SNAPPER TURNED UP AT McCALL’S, I SNAPPED UP FOUR FILLETS.  IT IS NOT AS FLAKEY AS COD, BUT IT HAS A WONDERFUL, RICH YET DELICATE FLAVOR AND THE CROSS-HATCHED PINK SKIN TURNS CRISP WITH PAN FRYING.  FRIENDS BROUGHT FRESH LIMES FROM THEIR BACKYARD TREE AND I THOUGHT THIS SOUR CITRUS MIGHT […]
