Preparation

In a bowl, mix all the marinade ingredients. Make slits on each side of the whole fish to allow the marinade to penetrate well.

In a rectangular dish, place the whole snappers and marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat or a frying pan. Grill the snappers about 4 to 6 minutes per side or until the flesh detaches easily.

In a large bowl, place the lettuce leaves, pour in some of the vinaigrette and mix well. Divide equally onto four plates and place the snapper fillets on top. Garnish with the cubed mango and avocado, and sprinkle with the almonds. Add more vinaigrette to taste.
