Pargo con Salsa de Perejil (Snapper in Parsley Sauce)Recipe
Randy Mayor; Jan Gautro
This colorful dish--a takeoff on a classic Spanish recipe--became popular when blenders were introduced in Cuba in the 1950s. This is a simplified version with a cleaner, fresher flavor. Serve with cherry tomatoes sautéed with garlic and boiled potatoes or white rice.
