Baked Snapper & Salad (Low Oxalate)

Snapper and salad make a versatile and super-satiety summer lunch recipe.  

The snapper provides protein, selenium, potassium, phosphorus, choline, B5, B6, B12 and omega 3, while the greens provide vitamin K1, C, A and folate.

This version of the recipe leaves out the chilli and tomatoes to keep the oxalates low.
