Herb-Stuffed Red Snapper

Herb-Stuffed Red Snapper

Be careful when testing for doneness, as steam will escape from the foil when you open it. A whole fish makes a dramatic entrée, best served family-style so guests can help themselves to this succulent dish. If you have extra fresh herbs on hand, garnish the platter with them.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 4 ounces fish and 1 lemon wedge)

Ingredients

  • 1 (4-pound) cleaned whole red snapper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 lemon slices
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves
  • 3 parsley sprigs
  • 3 mint sprigs
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 4 lemon wedges

Preparation

1. Prepare grill.

2. Score fish by making 3 diagonal cuts on each side. Lay 1 (18 x 12–inch) sheet of foil flat on a work surface, and coat with cooking spray. Place fish in center of sheet; rub oil in fish cavity. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt in fish cavity; sprinkle remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt evenly on both sides of fish. Place lemon slices and next 4 ingredients (through thyme) in fish cavity.
