  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

  • 1 lemon, zested and sliced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 (1 pound) whole red snappers, cleaned and scaled

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Mix parsley, olive oil, oregano, lemon zest, and garlic together in a small bowl.

  2. Rinse red snappers and pat dry with paper towels. Cut 3 diagonal slits across the top of each fish, cutting almost to the bone. Season the cavities with salt and pepper.

  3. Rub the parsley mixture on the inside and top of the fish, pushing the mixture into the slits. Place the fish in the center of the grill pan; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Place the grill pan in the Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven and press "Auto Cook." Select the Fish setting, 3, and 1-pound serving. Cook until an instead-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 130 degrees F (54 degrees C), about 20 minutes. Adjust time as needed. Serve with lemon slices.
