Red snapper is gently dipped in a homemade marinade before the residual is added to the frying pan and reduced to make a glorious sauce.


Serves: 2 

  • 2 fillets red snapper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onions
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Rinse snapper under cold water and pat dry. In a shallow bowl mix together olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar, mustard, honey, spring onions and ginger.
  2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Dip snapper fillets in mixture to coat both sides, and place in frying pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Pour remaining mixture into frying pan. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Used different ingredients. I love this recipe but decided to play with it the second time around. I replaced the green onion with about 1/8 c of chopped shallots and marinated the snapper for about 5 minutes in the sauce. It came out excellent! - 29 Sep 2008
