Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Snapper works really well with Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, and Gruener Veltliner. Fish is as diverse as wine, so it's hard to pick wines that go with every fish. A crisp white wine, such as a pinot grigio or Grüner Veltliner, will suit any delicately flavored white fish. Meaty, strongly flavored fish such as salmon and tuna can even handle a light red wine, such as a pinot noir. The Premonition Cellars Pinot Noir with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 40 dollars per bottle.

Premonition Cellars Pinot Noir

This wine showcases concentrated flavors of cherry, cranberry and strawberry with hints of herb spices, fennel and oak aromas on the nose. Red berry fruits, tart cranberry, raspberry, and spices coat the palette, finishing with juicy acidity. This cool year helped retain its natural acidity, and the slow ripening allowed for beautifully balanced low alcohol wine. This wine has been barreled for 20 months in French oak, and has warm toasty aromas weaved throughout.

Instructions

NOTES: Serves 2. This will work with any kind of fish, any kind of citrus, and any kind of herb. Use your favourites. Mix the salt and the egg whites in a large bowl. Rub the fish with olive oil and stuff it with the orange slices and bay leaves. Use a third of the salt to make a bed for the fish on a half-sheet pan. Lay the fish on this bed, and use the rest of the salt to completely encase the fish. Cook the fish in a 350 F oven for half an hour. Remove crust along the length of the fish and carefully pull off the skin. Remove the top fillet in one piece. Carefully pull the spine out and scoop the second fillet out, leaving the skin behind.
