 Vegetable Topped Snapper: Of course, you can substitute any firm whitefish
 for the red snapper. Yucca Root is also called cassava. Must be peeled and
 cooked before eating. (International Produce Cookbook and Guide (HPBooks
 1989) Marlene Brown.)
 
 YUKK-ah from Brazil; also “yuca.” Very large, elonged root with thick brown
 skin that is often waxed to hold in moisture. Flesh is white; very mild,
 potato-like flavor. About 100 cals per 3.5 oz serving. Vit A and Thiamin.
 Do not eat raw. Cook like a potato.
