BBQ Broiled Red Snapper

Rated as 4.44 out of 5 Stars

"If you don't cook fish often, or don't like fish, this broiled red snapper recipe may be just what the doctor ordered. Normally we don't want to cover up the delicate flavors of the seafood, but in this case, we have no choice. It's not like you can't tell you're eating fish, but close enough."

I used fresh red snapper and made the recipe exactly the way it is written. My husband and I loved it! I will definitely make this again.

Did I miss something? Followed instructions but not sure what you do with the 2nd half of the mayo mixture?

It was really great. First time we had red snapper my husband really liked it.
