Oxmoor House APRIL 2009

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 1/2 teaspoons herbed butter)
  • Cook time:13 Minutes
  • Prep time:9 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) red snapper or other firm white fish fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh herbs (such as rosemary, thyme, basil, or parsley)
  • Fresh herb sprigs (optional)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Cut 1 lemon into 8 slices. Place slices, in pairs, on a rimmed baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Grate remaining lemon to get 1 teaspoon lemon rind; set aside. Reserve lemon for another use.

3. Place 1 fillet on top of each pair of lemon slices. Combine salt, paprika, and pepper; sprinkle evenly over fish. Bake at 425° for 13 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

4. While fish bakes, combine reserved lemon rind, butter, and herbs in a small bowl.

5. Place fish and lemon slices on individual serving plates; top each fillet with herbed butter, spreading to melt, if desired. Garnish with herb sprigs, if desired.
