Snapper Veracruz Recipe

Snapper Veracruz is a delicious fish fillets dish with salsa sauce poured over. I love this Mexican styled fish dish with an assortment of fishes with other fish fillet dishes like grouper or orange roughy ! Try this Snapper Veracruz for a party or casual meal and let me know if you like it.
