Snapper with Spicy Crab and Andouille Sauce

Well the husband is a raving lunatic about this dish!  Best I've ever had, fish dish, meal ever!!  This is it the recipe to end all recipes.  Well at least according to him it is.  My husband was in charge of the grocery shopping.  He was shopping for the roast sea bass we had last night, and when there was no sea bass, he asked about substitutions, to which the internet replied and I filtered down to tilapia or snapper.  We had some tilapia so I didn't think he bought snapper and when I cooked last night, I used the tilapia never seeing the snapper.  Well now I had these lovely snapper fillets and no plan.  A quick pinterest and food and wine search turned up this dish.  It was a happy accident because as you read above my husband really lost his head over this dish! Its a little fussy to make, but still quick and if everyone you serve this to likes it a quarter as much as my husband, you will find yourself drowning in accolades.
