Grilled Snapper

    4 days 18 minutes

    This is a super simple method of cooking snapper but it requires a few days marination to make the lemon oil. Note that I am using a stovetop grill pan which has ridges to make nice grill marks. You could also do it on the barbecue.

      Lemon Oil:

    1. Peel the lemon with a potato peeler, making sure you only get the peel and not the white pith. Pound the peel in a mortar and pestle with 2 tablespoons olive oil to release all the lemon oils, about 1 minute.
    2. Scrape the contents of the mortar into a jar or plastic container and add remaining olive oil. Let marinate 4 days, then strain, discarding the peel.
    3. Snapper:

    4. Rub the snapper fillets with salt and pepper. Rub with lemon oil on both sides.
    5. Heat up a ridge grill plate on the stove over high heat. Toss on the fish fillets and grill a few minutes each side to leave grill marks - do not overcook.
    6. Transfer fish to warmed serving plates, drizzle with extra lemon oil and sprinkle with parsley. Done!
