Cajun Snapper with Red Beans & Rice

The classic flavors of Cajun country come out to play in this wonderfully simple main dish, perfect for busy weeknights. When buying fresh fish, pay close attention to the smell. Fresh snapper should smell slightly sweet, and a little salty, like clean sea-water. If it smells "fishy" at all, it has turned, and is not safe for consumption.
