I have red snapper fillets to make for dinner this evening and am not really sure how to prepare them. Anyone have a favorite snapper preparation?

I had thought I would grill the fillets, but looking online it seems like pan frying and broiling are more popular methods.

I like to put jerk them (30 mins w a marinade is sufficient) and then wrap in foil and throw on the bbq or you can broil. And you can serve with a quick mango salsa (mango, tomato, red onion, lime and olive oil)

I think snapper needs color, so I broil them briefly and season them simply.

Bon Appetit, May 2015 has a recipe that bakes snapper, new potatoes and spring onions tossed with olive oil and harissa, finishes with broiling the snapper. Its become a new favorite of mine! Really easy, too.

This is a very nice recipe from Bon Appetit, cod poached in saffron and tomato. It will work nicely with red snapper. http://www.bonappetit.com...

Sprinkle 1/2 lemon on the filet. Then drizzle with olive oil and generously sprinkle with Paul P's fish magic and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. I bake the lemon half with it and then squeeze the cooked lemon again over the fish before serving with yellow rice and pease. Simple and delicious!

Pretty much any seasoning/preparation you'd use on a boneless, skinless chicken breast works well on a white fish fillet - just takes a whole lot less time to cook. So go on with your family's favorite flavors and have a great time!

I would marinade them in chermoula sauce and bake them.
