I don't like tomatoes, but this dish is really good. It was my first time having Snapper, which I thought was good as well. I used the exact amounts indicated in the recipe, except I only had 12oz of fish (in two pieces). It didn't taste too mustardy or anything. I didn't serve over rice or anything; just the spinach and Snapper. I used a sweet (white) onion, Publix brand spinach, Ken's Steakhouse Lite Northern Italian, and French's Dijon Mustard with Chardonnay. I will definitely be making this again!
Red Snapper over Sauteed Spinach and Tomatoes
A tangy mixture of Dijon mustard and Italian dressing seasons both broiled snapper and sautéd vegetables. Serve with boil-in-bag brown rice or crusty dinner rolls.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fish fillet, about 3/4 cup spinach mixture, and 1 lemon wedge)
