    SuperDave,[p]Here are a couple I have used. The first one is for a whole snapper and quite good.[p]Stogie
    Mexican Snapper [p]1 Red Snapper, whole[p]VINAIGRETTE
    3 tablespoon(s) Olive oil, virgin
    1 tablespoon Lime juice, fresh
    1 tablespoon Cilantro, chopped
    1 teaspoon Garlic, finely minced
    1/4 teaspoon Oregano, dried
    1/4 teaspoon Cumin
    1/4 teaspoon Kosher (coarse) salt
    1/8 teaspoon Cayenne pepper[p]1/2 cup Red onion, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup Anaheim chiles, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup Tomato(s), fresh, thinly sliced[p]PREPARATION:
    Combine the vinaigrette ingredients.[p]Place the onion, chiles and tomatoes in separate bowl and pour 1/2 the vinaigrette over them. Toss to coat.[p]Stuff the veggies inside the cavity and tie to close.[p]Brush outside with remaining vinaigrette.[p]Cook over Indirect medium heat for about 20-30 minutes, or until desired doneness.[p]Remove filets and serve with veggies.
    Southwestern Fish [p]2 pound(s) Fish
    4 teaspoon(s) Cumin powder
    2 teaspoon(s) Salt
    2 teaspoon(s) Black pepper, coarsely ground
    6 tablespoon(s) Sour cream
    6 tablespoon(s) Mayonnaise
    3 tablespoon(s) Lime juice
    1 clove Garlic, crushed
    pinch Salt[p]PREPARATION:
    Season fish with salt and pepper.[p]Coat fish with dusting of cumin. Pat firmly into fish.[p]Brush fish with oil and grill to your doneness.[p]Combine remaining ingredients and whisk together.[p]Serve Lime Cream sauce on top of fish. Let come to room temp before serving.[p]

  • SuperDave,[p]If the snapper is fresh-just add salt and pepper-grill it on egg for about 20 min at 400-a little lemon right before you take it off-this fish is too good fresh to add flavor-turn whole fish once and not at all for filets.
