Serving Size: Serves 2 Ingredients
  • 4 Snapper Fillets
  • 4 T Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 T Lemon Juice (fresh)
  • Make sure there are no pin bones left in your Snapper Fillets. Season the flesh side with salt and a little pepper.
  • In a large, non-stick saute pan, add in your butter. Over a fairly high heat, once your butter starts to foam, add your snapper fillets, skin side down. Baste the tops of the snapper with the butter and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Flip the fillets over and cook another 2 minutes. At this point, add in your lemon. Cook another minute (make sure the fillets are cooked through) and remove them from the pan.
  • Serve immediately.
