Summer’s Catch: Fresh Red Snapper with Lemon and Sea Salt Butter


2 fresh red snapper filets
3 tbsp. Sea Salt Banner Butter
1 lemon
2 tsp. seafood or fish seasoning (Old Bay or similar)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/3 cup dry white wine


Place oven rack in center of oven.

Preheat broiler to 450 degrees.

Pat filets dry and lightly coat with olive oil.

Slice lemon in half. Cut one-half of lemon into thin slices, use other half for wedges to serve alongside the dish.

Arrange pats of butter in an oven-safe pan (or cast iron skillet) and top with thin slices of lemon. Place fish on top of the lemon slices and sprinkle fish with seasoning or salt and pepper.

Put pan in the oven and broil for 6 minutes.  

Remove pan from oven. Spoon the extra butter from the pan on top of the filets and add a splash of white wine.

Broil for another 6-8 minutes until done.


*Adjust cooking time to thickness of the filet.  Filets for this recipe were ~¾-1 inch thick.
