Roasted Red Snapper with Bell Peppers

Roasted Red Snapper with Bell Peppers Recipe

Roasted Red Snapper with Bells Peppers is a delicious and tasty fresh fish recipe that takes less than 30 minutes to cook—just enough time to get dinner on the table on time—one of the best snapper recipes to try.

Roasted Fish recipes are easy to find on the world wide web. Cookbooks and cooking magazines also have tons of recipes to make or recreate. In other words, there’s no reason for anyone to say they can’t cook fish because they don’t have a recipe—just my opinion.

Although many recipes are available, finding a winning recipe may not be that easy. Like those in the Caribbean, I prefer fresh fish recipes prepared with basic fresh herbs and spices. I also like the Mediterranean fish recipes, cooked with fresh herbs and spices and fresh vegetables.

Fish, in general, are easy to cook. Seasoning your fish the right way before cooking is not that easy. For example, you may want to pay attention to fresh herbs’ smell and taste. Not all herbs will go well with all fish or seafood.

Types of herbs to use for fish or red snapper recipes

Bay leaves, Basil, Parsley, Sage, Thyme, Chives, Dill, Marjoram, Lemon Balm, Mint, Rosemary, and Tarragon are the most common herbs for spicing up fish. These herbs can be used fresh or dried. They are also used to stuff whole fish.

How about adding spices?

Spices such as salt and pepper, the most common and basic spices, appear in every seafood recipe. Usually, when using fresh herbs, adding salt and pepper is a great combination when you don’t have a seasoning blend.

What type of fish is best for this recipe?

When roasting or baking, usually a firm fish is ideal. Halibut, snapper, cod, salmon, tuna, or mahi-mahi are just a few fish to bake or roast. The fish can be whole, fillet, or cut into large pieces.

How long does it take to bake fish in the oven?

Baking fish in the oven requires cooking time calculation. If you cover your fish in the first stages of cooking, it will most likely retain most of its moisture.

One important ingredient is olive oil. Olive oil is best when baking, roasting, or grilling fish. It adds a fresh taste to seafood and is healthy for you.

How to cook red snapper

This recipe was inspired by the Mediterranean. I recreated the recipe using Noubess condiments, spices, and other ingredients. The recipe is easy to follow and make. The most important thing to do is to ensure all ingredients are fresh.

Yellow bell peppers, red bell peppers, and green bell peppers add flavor and aroma to seafood recipes. And let’s not forget lemon juice. The one ingredient that binds everything together and is essential to all fish and seafood recipes.

You don’t have to use Red Snapper. Any thick fletch fish you like will do. For the sweet peppers, mini red peppers will work as well. You can also substitute shallots for red onions.

I used Noubess Fish & Seafood seasoning, which is salt-free and makes it easy to control flavor and sodium. I also use Noubess Hot and Spicy Sauce to bring out the flavors of the snapper. Depending on the type of fish you will be using, you will need to adjust the seasoning. Denser fish requires more seasoning and salt.

Tips and Notes

  • Substitute fish fillets, red snapper fillets, salmon fillets, or any white fish
  • Increase the seasoning if cooking more fish.
  • Increase the seasoning if cooking firmer and fatty fish such as swordfish and salmon.
  • You may want to add more lemon if you want a lemony taste.
