    I'mPat's Note:

    Looking for fish recipes for the barbie for when we go on holiday next year. This one is from Super Food Ideas. The recipe just specified whole baby snapper, not necessary just red snapper. NOTE - you could use a 1.5kl whole snapper and allow for 20 to 30 minutes to cook through, turning half way through the cooking time.
