Rs. 598 Serves 2

This much loved Lebanese fish delicacy is spectacularly presented on a large platter as part of a buffet. Most often reserved for special occasions, you need to head to the fish market and buy the freshest snapper for this recipe. Originally, this dish is baked whole fish but we have made a pan fried version for easy dinner experience.
