This is such a wonderful dish to make for a dinner party. We catered for 8 guests in the recipe but it is easy enough to scale down if you need to. We use fresh locally caught Snapper, which is so delicious with a wonderful texture. Even if you do not live by the sea your local fishmonger will surely be able to get some for you.
