I created this recipe for my former classmate and friend Alicia McGraw. My personal challenge to my Facebook family and friends was for me to create an original recipe based on ingredients they requested me to use. You Ask, I Deliver! Alicia wanted me to create a recipe consisting of red snapper, shrimp, chipotle peppers and scallions. Here is my original recipe. I hope you like it.
