This was the first time for me to make red snapper. I’ve tasted it before but I couldn’t tell you when or how it tasted. I have a hard take telling different kinds of fish apart. Tilapia is the only fish I’ve cooked for over a year, thought I’d try a different one.
I found this recipe online at this link. I didn’t have many of the ingredients at the time so I made some substitutes and left others out completely.
I also made one change that I regret. She uses one stuck of butter in her’s, which is equivalent to a cup. I thought that was a bit too much butter, so I oiled the fish instead with a little olive oil and then added much less butter later.
What I didn’t know at the time is that red snapper is a fatty fish. So adding any oil or butter needs to be done with a bit of plan. In the end it tasted fine but it was a bit too oily for my taste.
Bake in the oven covered with foil at 180°C for about 12 minutes or until cooked. Then uncover it and let it brown for two minutes or so. You can use the grill setting if you have it.
