Recipe for Red Snapper Vera Cruz Style

Rabbit Sauce w/Papparadelle

Favorite - This is an all time favorite

This is the version we make with Pacific red snapper and sometimes ling cod. We usually use a handful of pickled jalapenos rather than fresh ones, and we use tons of capers and cocktail olives. You can up the red pepper count with minimal adjustment to the recipe.
