Snapper Burritos

This is a “let’s pretend it’s not still Winter” recipe.

You can use any white fish in these flavorful, simple burritos, packed with cilantro-lime rice, and black beans cooked in tomato juice! | #recipeLet’s instead dream about sandy beaches with crystal blue water, and sun so hot you need an umbrella.

I think she uses tilapia, but I chose to use Snapper. This is actually Pacific Snapper (different from the Snappers I can find in Florida like Red or Vermillion), also known as Rockfish. I got it from Pike’s Place Fish Market, and it’s great stuff. You can use any mild whitefish you can get your hands on, though.
