Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 (2 inch) piece fresh ginger root, minced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (2 pound) whole snapper fillet

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a large sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray.

  2. Thoroughly mix the soy sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. Dip both sides of the fish into the soy sauce mixture, and place onto the aluminum foil. Spoon a little more sauce over the top of the fish. Roll up the aluminum foil to completely enclose the fillet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is opaque and flakes easily, about 20 minutes.

Editor's Note

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.

Best fish to use include gray snapper, mutton snapper, yellowtail snapper, or tilapia. Avoid red snapper due to overfishing.

Cook's Note

This recipe can be used for grilling as well - just swap out the foil and be certain to oil, grease or spray the grill's rack well. Reduce the cooking time by about 5 minutes.
