If you don’t want to fry or grill your fish, here’s a quick and delicious red snapper recipe you can enjoy anytime.
Red snapper is a favorite fish of many Caribbean islanders. This type of fish is prepared in many different ways. Grilled, baked, roasted, poached, fried, no matter the method it is absolutely divined when the fish is well seasoned.
To make this recipe, you first need to purchase two normal size red snappers. Two regular size fish will feed 2-4 people. Both fish must be scaled, gutted and cleaned.
Seasoning fish or seafood is quite easy. The right seasoning mixture will be a combination of herbs, spices, and lemon juice. For this recipe, I opted to use Noubess Hot and Spicy Pineapple with Herbs Sauce, Noubess Lemon Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Noubess Fish, and Seafood Seasoning, fresh parsley, onion, fresh tomatoes, fresh garlic, salt, and pepper.
The ingredients above with the exception of the Noubess Fish and Seafood Seasoning are combined to create an aromatic and delicious broth for the fish. The dried seasoning was used to season the fish inside and out.
The sauce or broth
I use fresh tomatoes instead of tomato paste because of the creamy texture of cooked fresh tomatoes. The sauce is made with fresh tomatoes, onion, spices, herbs, and Noubess Hot and Spicy Pineapple with Herbs.
Cooking the fish
You may have noticed from the photos that a baking dish was used to bake or roast the fish in the oven. The use of the baking dish is to make sure that the sauce penetrates the fish well. The dish must be deep enough to allow the fish to cook evenly.
This recipe is very versatile. You can add leeks, scallion, fresh thyme baby spinach and even mushroom in the sauce. Fresh codfish or any firm fish fillets are great alternatives.
