Snapper mild white fish that can be baked, broiled, steamed and fried. But, to get some of the best flavour, grilling it with just a few ingredients.
This lime snapper recipe uses four simple ingredients – snapper, limes, butter and smoked paprika.
2 snapper fillets
3 large limes, very thinly sliced
2 teaspoons melted butter per fillet
Canola oil spray
This is an easy, flavourful method for grilling snapper, sole or any thin fish fillets that often fall apart on a hot grill.
- Preheat grill to medium high.
- Rinse fish with cool water and pat dry with paper towels.
- Spray one side of the lime slices with canola oil and arrange them in the centre of the grill to form a bed for each fillet.
- Lay the fish on top of the lime slices and baste with melted butter and a generous pinch of smoked paprika.
- Lightly tent the fish with heavy-duty aluminium foil.
- Reduce the heat to medium and allow the limes to char and release their juices to flavour the fish.
- Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.
- When the fish is opaque and firm to the touch, slip a lightly oiled spatula beneath the limes and lift the fish off the grill.
- Garnish with parsley if desired.
