Dirty Snapper in Parchment

If a martini can be dirty & delicious with the addition of olives, why can’t fish? No need to shake or stir – let the steam inside the parchment pouch do the work of infusing the olive flavors into the fish. Snapper in parchment is a dinner host’s best friend. The fish can be completely…
