Donna’s recipe is really paper-bag snapper with preserved lemons. I had the will to make this but not all the ingredients. I looked for snapper, but it was not to be found. And I live in a state with tons of seafood. So I settled for catfish.


But Red Snapper would have been SOOOO good.

The fish is cooked in parchment with Basil, Preserved Lemons, Garlic, White wine, and Olive oil for about 30 minutes. The fish is flavorful, flaky, and definitely repeatable. No clean-up. Perfect!!


This was Gaye’s pick this week and the recope is from Donna’s book, Seasons. (page 40) So check on Gaye’s fish and then go over and visit with
