I purchased two beautiful snapper fillets with intentions to use them in an Asian-inspired dinner that could be made in a snap.
A knob of fresh ginger worked double-duty in the following recipe; I peeled the ginger, julienned it (see picture), then macerated the ginger in rice wine vinegar.

Asian flavors are marvelous with snapper and the following method is a low-labor, max-flavor recipe. If time does not allow for maceration, just skip the step – you’ll still have a delicious dish.

We’ve been holed up for a few weeks at a VRBO (an excellent find, a rare tranquil spot close to Duvall) as I brainstorm characters for Potlikker, a novel set in today’s Detroit. Even though we’re as far south from Detroit as … Full recipe post »
