Instructions Checklist

  • Make three slashes across each side of the fish using a sharp knife. This will keep the fish from curling as it cooks. Place the fish in a shallow baking dish or roasting pan. Cover each side with fresh ginger, then green onions and tomatoes. Season with sea salt. Slice half of the lime and place the slices on top of the fish. Drizzle with the soy sauce, and squeeze the other half of the lime over the fish. Cut the lemon in half and set in the pan. Cover the whole dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake the fish until the flesh is opaque and can be flaked with a fork, about 20 minutes. Squeeze the baked lemon halves over the fish before serving. Serve the fillet on the top side first, then gently lift out the backbone, while helping the flesh off the bones with your knife. It's much easier than trying to turn the fish over.

This was FABULOUS! Snapper to me is somewhat strong but this was the best. I did not have a lime so I used Pineapple chumks. Great combination with the Soy sauce. Family loved this! Read More

I thought this was OK but if I make it again I will drizzle it with a little fat; olive oil sesame oil...just a little something to make it a little more satisfying. Loved the soy sauce flavor though! Read More

We tried this tonite but used Lemon & Oranges instead of Limes on Snapper fillets. Quick easy & light. Will make again. Read More

This was spectacular! We grilled it because it's summer. We also used filets because I bought the fish first looked for a recipe second. My hubby NOT a big fish fan said it is 5-star restaurant quality. Definitely make again! Read More

Had this tonight and it exceeded my expectations! The ginger made it really hot and spicy and i didnt even put the full amount. I'm giving it just a 4 because i need about 10 minutes more cooking time and i found that the soy sauce was too much. Read More

Fantastic recipe! I did do some slight changes - added chopped ginger and extended the cooking time by 15 mins because the fish was undercooked at 20 minutes when I opened the foil. I also reduced the soy sauce from 1/3 cup to 1/4 cup to make it less salty. Overall a great Chinese-restaurant style dish! Read More

I had a bag of red snapper that was frozen together in a clump that I had already cooked plain on low in a crockpot. Found this recipe as I was looking for something to jazz up the plain fish. I made a sauce with all the ingredients including that I juiced the lemon and lime instead of using slices. It was so delicious! I would definitely make again. Read More

It was quite good and a great alternative for cooking fish. Had it with snapper and will try it with other fish as well. Didn't change anything and don't think I would going forward. Read More
