Chipotle peppers add a smoky, spicy note to the butter topping. For a cooling side salad, toss diced cucumbers and tomatoes with reduced-fat sour cream.
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 (6-ounce) red snapper or other firm whitefish fillets
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, finely minced
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 4 ingredients; sprinkle evenly over fish. Place fish on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; bake 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
While fish bakes, combine butter and chile. Spread butter mixture evenly over fish. Serve with lemon wedges.

We made this recipe using tilapia and adding a bit of garlic powder to the rub. We also added a tablespoon of honey to the chipotle butter. Not bad at all, but a little on the spicy side. We rounded out this meal with sauteed spinach with garlic and some roasted potatoes. We'd make this one again.
Okay, so this was one of my favorite recipes I've ever made. I used tilapia instead of snapper (because that was what was available) and only cooked it for about 12 minutes. The seasoning and butter together were perfect. I served it with a simple mushroom risoto and green beans. I will make this over and over again!
This is fabulous and a great way to make snapper! We added more chipotle and threw in some minced habanero from the garden to spice things up. Served with Riversong Giddy-Up Grits and Cauliflower Gratin with Queso Cotija.
Hubby and I loved this recipe. The ony change I made was I used a little garlic powder to the spice mixture. I would make this for guest because it is quick and easy. One would be able to spend more time with your guest. Served with asparagus and baked potato. I used Talapia. Could not find Snapper.
My husband and I really like this recipe! I made it as written, however I did use the whole recipe on just two 8 oz. red snapper filets as we like spice. This recipe is so easy and delivers a lot of flavor! We had it last weekend, I saved it straight away, and we are having it again this wknd. Highly recommend!
