Slow-cooked MSC Snapper

Holy dooly! This is a dish that will wow the in-laws. In fact, true story, I made this dish the first time I met my wife’s parents. Bryan pretty much ate the whole thing, and we were left with the bones. So make sure if you’ve cooking with a few hungry humans you’ve got a big snapper! I always try to use MSC certified fish whenever I can. It just means we’re doing our bit for our ocean friends and not contributing to over-fished waters. The coconutty flavour of this dish is delicious and will make you feel like you’re on holiday in Thailand. Plus is super keto friendly and preeeeety easy to whip up.
