Snapper Recipe - Mediterranean

Fillets of Sea Bass - Lubina With Plump Prawns

Great Snapper Recipe with Plump Prawns and a special reduced sauce.

You can use any firm white fleshed fish for this dish - I often use Sea Bass - Lubina in Spain and - Loup de Mer in France. This is about the nearest thing we can get to Snapper here in the Mediterranean.

It's important to leave the skin on as the crispy skin contrasts greatly with the firm white flesh and the Juicy Shrimp.
