Best way I've had it, I forget the restaurant in Marathon in the Keys..(pretty sure it was on Marathon...maybe Isla...).it was out on a dock, but they had this whole cooked grilled snapper drenched in an awesome key lime sauce.
My daughter was freaking out, she was like..10 at the time, and never saw a "whole" cooked fish before..laying there on the plate staring up at you with its eye. LMAO!

But man...oh it was goooooood!

Whole, gutted and grilled on charcoal. Fillet with skin on and grilled on charcoal. Fillet, skinned and blackened.
All work for me.

Another Option, scaled, skin on, filet, on tinfoil, skin up, mayo (real mayo, not fake) season to taste and bake. Good for almost all snapper.

I usually just blacken it for ease of cooking. One time my MIL made a piccata with some we caught and it was legit.

I like to top fillets with a mixture of ritz cracker crumbs, butter and fresh herbs. Bake until just flaky and hit with a squeeze of lemon.

Mine is easier.

skinless fillets. Segment of foil that has been sprayed with PAM or your favorite spray oil.
Sprinkle of Slap Ya Mama seasoning, and slide that onto a hot gas grill. Turn that side of the grill down to minimum heat.

Sides would go directly over the hot side of the grill. Zucchini spears, slice of onion, bare corn on the cob, cored and split jalapeno.
You want to turn those over after about 7 minutes.

Give it about 12 to 15 minutes of total cooking time. Pour yourself another tasty beverage. Then serve. Throw foil away.
Done.

Man did I ever blow it, but I survived I guess.

I tried some sort of key lime sauce...and a shitty one at that. Some baking soda 1 tbsp, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of key lime juice, 1/4 cup of water. I used the sauce to hold bread crumbs on the fish fillets. I cooked in butter and I did slice some almonds in for flavor.
Bottom line was the sugar over powered everything. At least the chef salad was really good and so was the corn on the cob.

God that sounds awful! Keep it simple next time. Old bay and pan fry or bake. It really is that easy.

No kidding, talk about over thinking things. Fried in olive oil and crushed garlic. Broiler with sea salt, cracker pepper and a couple of slices of fresh Lemon on top. Grill, medium heat, put fillets or whole fish in tin foil pouch, sea salt, fresh ground pepper, couple sprigs of Rosemary if you have it, sliced onions, sliced fresh mushrooms. Seal pouch, put on grill, keep sniffin it and you will know when it's done.And have many more just as simple.. Geezus, it should be illegal to mess up good, fresh fish.

What the hell were you thinking? What part of this recipe sounded good to you?

Out of all the items in bold above, I see 3 (borderline 4) that I would NOT associate with fish.



MODS!!!!!!!!

"What the hell were you thinking? What part of this recipe sounded good to you?" I asked a question and Stonecat replied that the key lime sauce over red snapper was goooooood! Obviously I trusted in the wrong advice.

And I will correct the above, it was corn starch not baking soda. Still didn't matter the fish was waaaaaay to sweet for my liking and for the Misses. By the time I was finished eating my portion and hers I was about ready to puke. If my pockets were deeper I would have thrown it out and got something else from the frig, but that isn't the case, so I finished it.
