  • “A quick and easy recipe with only a few ingredients that was very easy to prepare.I used expeller-pressed coconut oil, and it came out superb.”

  • “Delicious, and allows for the fish flavor to come through:)I would recommend this, and thanks so much for posting!”

  • “Absolutely wonderful, we could not stop raving.
    This is my new favourite fish recipe, it would be wonderful with sea bass also.
    The flavours are incredible.”

  • “Tebo, I hate to give this such a bad rating… I dont know where it went wrong, but it was bland for us.I added more pepper and then salt to it once it was out, and then it tasted much better.. but maybe it needed more nutmeg?I didnt know how much to sprinkle on, so, maybe I just didnt use enough.So sorry… I will try this again in a while just to try a bit more nutmeg and see if that helps.:)”

  • “Jan. 9, 2009 I was looking for a healthy way to cook snapper when I found this recipe. I used half olive oil and half canola oil. and added half cup white wine. We loved how this came out. I have some cod to try it on next.Thanks for posting this one!”

  • “So simple, so delicious. It became my favorite fish recipe. I love ginger, so I add a tablespoon (or more) minced ginger to it. It blends very well with orange. Even if I forget about the nutmeg, it is great. I made it with fresh whole snapper a couple of times, and with other fish too. OMG. Thanks for posting.”

  • “Apr 9, 2004Wow Tebo, this was superb!! I had two kinds of fish to cook for Good Friday, some halibut and some red snapper, so I went spicy with the halibut and then found your red snapper. We loved the subtleness of the orange and nutmeg, I will be making this one again and it will go in my hard copy, thanks for sharing a real keeper, enjoyed by all.May 24/04 update, did this again tonight with cod, and have now done it with halibut also, it worked beautifully for all of them, easy, quick and delicious, a very pleasant way to have our fish.Thanks Tebo!”
