This mediterranean red snapper recipe is a healthy, tasty and easy to go recipe! You can put it together in minutes!
· 2 whole redsnapper fishes (approx. 1 kg/ each), cleaned, gutted and scaled
· 1 tsp fleur de sel/ flower of salt
· 1 tsp pink peppercorn
· 1 tsp crushed black pepper
· 1 tsp blackpepper
· 1 lemon
· Parsley, leaves picked and chopped
· Extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Pat the snapper fish dry. Make two slits on each side of the fish.
Season the fish with pink peppercorn, crushed pepper and fleur de sel from both sides. Pat the spices into the fish pushing it into the slits you made earlier.
Now stuff each gut cavity with the chopped parsley and the sliced lemon.
Place the stuffed fish on an oiled baking sheet or line it with backing foil to prevent the fish from sticking. Drizzle generously with olive oil.
Roast for 45 minutes on middle rack on 180 degrees until the fish flakes. Use the slits you made earlier to cut and portion the fish using 2 forks. Lift the fillets off the bones and place the fish to a platter and serve it with wedges of the lemon.
Enjoy with a side of rice or salad and a glass of white wine!
