The wine evaporated before cooking the fish gives it a very particular caramelized wine taste and doesn't need any sauce with it. Goes very well with any vegetable and will impress your guests by its subtlety (still being very fast and easy to prepare).

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour Riesling wine into a large skillet over medium heat; cook until mostly evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir butter and garlic into remaining wine; cook and stir until the garlic softens and the butter melts completely, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Season red snapper fillets with salt and black pepper. Increase heat under the skillet to high; gently lie snapper fillets into the butter and garlic mixture. Cook about 3 minutes, turn, add the almonds, and continue cooking until the flesh of the snapper flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes more.

This was very quick and easy but tasted like I know what I'm doing. I didn't have sliced almonds handy so I put some fresh rosemary into the wine while it was reducing then put some on top of the fish the last few minutes of cooking. Even my teenage son who hates fish thought it was good. Read More

This ended up being very greasy. Flavors are not crisp. It ended up being a very heavy meal with just a side of rice. Read More

I made this for my partner for Valentine's Day and he enjoyed it. It is a simple garlic wine sauce so using a good quality Riesling and very fresh snapper are key. A wonderful simple yet elegant dish. Thanks for sharing! Read More

The only change I made was to squeeze lemon over the fish in the pan near the end of the cooking. I also served it with a lemon wedge on each plate for individual taste. Make sure to watch the pan carefully after the heat is turned to high. I'm wondering of medium high would be a better temp for fillets tsagty are a bit thick. Read More

I was very tempted to tweak this recipe - it just seemed too simple with so few ingredients. I am SO glad that I didn't however. It was excellent! The blending of flavors was amazing and took me by surprise. We really enjoyed it and I will definitely be making it again. Read More
