Chef Snowball says that she learned this recipe from someone in Haiti. While the restauarants there generally translated it as Red Snapper with Sea Salt, Chef Snowball thinks that you could probably substitute other similar fish.

I am going to try this tonight. It sounds to die for. I wounder if you could do this with other fish. I have to write to Chef Snowball. Or please write back, Chef, when you see this post. Thanks!
