Snapper with Roasted Grapes & Cashews

Alright, so I found this recipe card at Kroger and was overjoyed because I happened to buy a red snapper fillet on sale a while back (it was chillin’ in my freezer). I’m currently trying to eat all the stuff in my refrigerator before I buy anything new (also because I’m going back home in about a month), so it was perfect!

The original recipe actually called for:

  • Walnuts, which I thought I had, but I apparently donated it to the cause (aka to make carrot cake for my friend’s birthday) a while back, so I subbed it with cashews.
  • Garlic (…I still don’t have any), so I subbed that with garlic powder
  • Seedless green grapes, but let’s face it, I’m too poor to be all fancy.
