Pour over the snapper in the dish.

  • Bake uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is opaque. Transfer fillets to serving plates and spoon the sauce over them. Garnish with a sprinkle of cashews and green onion.

My fiance and I thought this was a restaurant-quality recipe and so easy to make!! I couldn't find fresh mandarin oranges so I used a juice orange and canned mandarin oranges. Definitely sprinkle on the cashews and green onions over the top if you like them it gives it great flavor and presentation on the plate! I will definitely make this again! Update: I have made this several times since I first discovered the recipe (ditched the fiance kept the recipe:-)) and I just LOVE it! I have started adding a small finely diced serrano pepper in place of the red chili flakes. I like the fresh pepper flavor! I serve it over Basmati rice. YUM! Read More

I think this recipe could be good but needs some work. Sauce was not bold or thick enough for me. I will try this again and next time I will cook sauce and fish on their own and then dress the fish. A good starting place. Read More

This recipe is absolutely fantastic! I prepared the sauce as written skipping the chopped mandarin orange slices. However instead of baking the fish I dredged them in flour seared them in a skillet oiled with one tablespoon of butter then added the sauce and cooked until it thickened. Don't skip the cashews or the spring onions they make this dish even better! Read More

Very yummy! I actually used Tilapia this time and it was equally as good as the snapper. The only thing I modified was to finely grate the ginger to evenly disperse the ingredient into the dish. I grate the ginger by turning it clockwise each time so as to not get the stringy pieces. Very easy! Read More

This was really good! We had clemetines instead of mandarins so used those instead. What surprised me the most was eating this as a leftover cold- it was delicious cold! Who knew? Read More

just made lat night for 7 adults and one y yr old. a few changes only because we lacked required ingredients-terriyaki sauce for soy sauce and olive oil for sesame-matched rest of recipe and only have to bake fish a lil longer because of the size of snapper fillets-EXCELLENT! very fresh light with a fruity sweet taste followed with a nutty spicy bite- will use often with orange roughy and trout as well! thank you!
