She who must be obeyed (and does not eat fish) is out of town on business. That means for G and me its time to do fish! I had some chipotle sauce left over from a prior dish, and hot fudge from yogurt night. I figured there must be a sauce I can build on top of those two wonderful ingredients. This red snapper and hot/sweet sauce dinner is super easy to make and tastes great.
recipe serves four
4 skinless red snapper filets (total weight around 2 pounds).
rice (Trader Joe’s frozen jasmine is good and easy).
8 oz can tomato sauce.
1/4 cup red wine.
2 Tbsp fudge.
1 Tbsp fresh squeeze lemon juice.
2 tsp chipotle sauce.
1 tsp minced jalapeno.
1 clove garlic – minced.
salt and pepper.
Coat both sides of red snapper with canola oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
To sauce pot add tomato sauce, jalapeño, chipotle, fudge, garlic, red wine, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir and heat on medium-low heat ten minutes while BBQ heats up.
Pre-heat BBQ to high. Spray canola oil or other spry oil on grill. Place skinless red snapper on grill and cook two minutes each side or until done.
Slice remaining lemon into rounds or wedges.
Peel and slice avocado.
Plate the rice, avocado, lemon, and red snapper. Spoon sauce over the dish and enjoy an easy meal that took what ….maybe twenty-five minutes start to finish. Oh yeah, easy recipe.

In Veyron by Roger Scouton, Jack Fields and Amber Reyes are a high powered team hired to oversee a security job at the Marine Corps Warrior’s Hospice Car Rally, a rally of classic cars in Arizona. The most classic and most expensive of the cars in the rally is a Bugatti Veyron owned by Prince Ahmed. Jack and Amber are ex-military and clandestine operatives hired by the insurance firm in London to work with Colonel Day, whose organization is providing security for the event. Of course, the event does not proceed as planned, as priceless cars are stolen, owners are killed, and the Prince is kidnapped during the rally. Now, Jack and Amber are required to use their considerable skills and connections to solve the mystery and bring the perpetrators to justice.Veyron is a sequel to Roger Scouton’s book Goldplay in which readers were first introduced to Jack and Amber, the team of protagonists in his new novel. Not having read the first novel, I am sure there is some back story that describes how Jack and Amber ended up being a couple and a team. However, Veyron definitely stands on its own and the reader should not feel compelled to read Goldplay first. Having said that, the energy, characters, and plot line in Veyron were so interesting that I intend to go back and read Goldplay, too! The best part about Veyron is that the reader essentially gets three stories in one book. The characters are the glue that holds the book together – and the primary and secondary characters are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes action, adventure, and mystery.
