Italian Baked Red Snapper

So you know how your taste buds change and keep evolving? Fish is one of those things I absolutely loathed as a child, but have gotten quite fond of as I’ve gotten older. I was in the mood for something different that we’ve not tried and Succulent Ape left the decision-making (yay!) and the cooking…
