It was okay. I was a little turned off by the chunk of butter on my fish--isn't this cookinglight.com? I think the mixture sans butter with a little olive oil would be a nice rub. My boyfriend loved it, but for the price of the fish ($14.99 a pound for rockfish--snapper was unavailable) it did not blow me away. I served with red potatoes and a spinach salad with a wonderful, tangy and easy sherry shallot vinaigrette I make.

I liked this recipe. I used Flouder for my fish and had to substitute ground ginger for the bottled variety. Otherwise, this is a very quick & easy fish recipe for a lunch or dinner with a side salad that has similar flavors.

Am I the only one who expected "Broiled Snapper" to be cooked under the broiler instead of pan seared?

This was such a great sauce and so easy to make. We used on snapper and chicken and both times it was great. I will make this again and again!!!

this was great. I'm not a huge lover of fish, but this came out so good. It is sauted not broiled, so I just use a touch of olive oil and it was amazing. I may make it again if I can figure out how to get rid of the fishy smell I woke up to this morning.

Really liked this, and so did my picky husband. Good flavor for coming together so quickly. My husband has already asked what else we can have the flavored butter on!

Amazing!! I made this without the ginger because we are not ginger fans. It was REALLY spicey. Next time I will definetly add a bit of ginger in the mix. However, it still was REALLY GOOD.

I agree with others calling it broiled snapper is silly considering it is pan fried. I was a little worried it might be bland with just salt and pepper on the fish, but the quality of the fish was so good it was fantastic. The cilantro lime butter was a lovely little rich addition to the meaty fish. Def would make again.

Cooking anything in a skillet without oil is called pan-broiling. So the dish is named appropriately. When you add oil to the pan, you are then sautéeing.

Not sure why they call it broiled because you sauté it. But it's delicious.

I actually used rockfish on suggestion of my grocer since they were out of red snapper. Served with brown rice and the recipe on this site for edamame and bean salad with shrimp and fresh salsa. It was outstanding together. Special occasion dish, though, since time-consuming and pricey. Will make again!
