I’m so delighted to share my Gluten-Free Sweet and Sour Recipe for Snapper Filets. I’ve made this dish in the background of my life for 30 years, and back in the day, it was something I might choose on a night when friends were coming for dinner, and I didn’t have a lot of time, but I wanted to really wow people.
It’s scrumptious with the wonderful textures of the julienned carrots, crispy garlic, and baby corn, and the delicious sauce just takes it over the top. Plus, seasoning the fish with a bit of ginger and coriander gives your finished product a bit of mystery.
My Sweet and Sour Snapper is deliciously gluten-free and was inspired by a dish I enjoyed at the restaurant Le Colonial in Chicago long before I was gluten-free. They deep-fried the entire fish, and you’d just pull the fish off the bone, and it was so sumptuous. I wanted to make an at-home version that didn’t require a lot of time and didn’t involve frying an entire fish, and I wanted my version to be more healthful, as well, and as it turns out, it totally stands the test of time.
The sauce is infused with fresh citrus juice and red curry paste, and it is truly an explosion of flavors. What a magical and wonderful glaze to spoon over this beautiful dish! It’s perfection, especially served over a bed of rice. You’ll want to make this dish again and again!
