    5      Lb.           snapper
                         salt and pepper to taste
      1/2                lime
      1/4  C.            flour
    1      C.            rice
    1      C.            chopped raw shrimp
      1/2  C.            chopped green onions -- including tops
      1/2  C.            very thinly sliced celery
    1      Tbsp.         grated ginger root
    2                    bacon slices
      1/4  C.            dry white wine
 
 Season red snapper with salt and pepper, inside and out.
 Rub with the lime. Sprinkle evenly with the flour. Combine
 rice, shrimp, onion, celery and ginger root. Spoon into fish.
 Skewer or sew opening. Lay fish in a heavily buttered baking
 pan. Score the top of the fish in an attractive design to
 prevent the fish from buckling. Lay bacon slices over the top.
 Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until fish flakes. Transfer
 fish to a warm platter. Deglaze baking pan with white dry
 wine. Pour liquid over fish.
