My husband and I really loved this dish. Most of all it wasn't just another boring fish recipe. We like food with a little "zing" and this definitely filled the bill. You can't ruin this recipe if you follow it as written. Just make sure you use a pan that's not too large so all the juices and sauce stay close to the fish while cooking. Read More

We are always trying to find a new and delicious way to eat more fish. This recipe is delicious. I thought it would be to spicy for my family but they said it was perfect. I could not find red snapper so substituted tilapia. I made not other changes other than that. Read More

I used Italian flavored stewed tomatoes for extra flavor and reduced the amount of red pepper by half but it was still pretty spicy. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I just made this dish tonight. I had to use flounder instead of snapper because the store was out of snapper. However it was fantastic with flounder! I can't imagine it being any better with snapper but I'm looking forward to trying it. I followed the recipe exactly (except for the flounder substitution) and it was spicy but not too spicy. Very easy to prepare and not too time consuming. It reminds me of an Italian dish without all the carbs of a typical Italian pasta dish. This will become a weekly meal at my house. Thank you for the fantastic recipe!:) Read More

This was delicious! Based on other comments saying it was too spicy I reduced the red pepper flakes by 1/4. It was just right. I also added a spoonful of commerical spaghetti sauce to help thicken the sauce. I will definitely make again. I'm planning to make it for a dinner party for five. Read More

This recipe was great!!!! We loved it!!! We actually used fresh caught salmon grouper and I made the stewed tomatoes from scratch. I added way more red pepper and some cayanne and oregano as well. I made tri-colored spiral noodles; after drained I added some olive oil a tad of italian dressing and some chili oil to spice it up. I put the fish atop the noodles and it paired together great. Also I used red wine. Read More
