Jamaican Style Steamed Snapper.

Jamaican Style Steamed Snapper Fish

As a pescatarian I try to get my seafood in at least 3 times per week. Red snapper and salmon are my two favorites. Sustainably sourced seafood such as salmon, snapper, mackerel, sardines and sea bass, are great sources of heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
