Recipe by Chef John
"If you don't cook fish often, or don't like fish, this broiled red snapper recipe may be just what the doctor ordered. Normally we don't want to cover up the delicate flavors of the seafood, but in this case, we have no choice. It's not like you can't tell you're eating fish, but close enough."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (7 ounce)
red snapper fillets
salt to taste
cayenne pepper, or to taste
This was pretty good, I would have liked stronger flavors, perhaps garlic?
This is the first time trying this recipe, I had bought some red snapper wanted another way to cook it The recipe was quick and easy to make. My family enjoyed it, I think I was heavy handed on cayenne though, but still tasty
I used this recipe on a combo of white trout & speckled trout that we caught off of our dock. It was delicious! Our son who does not like fish said that since we will eat fish again he would like it to be made like this recipe and that he prefers this recipe over fried fish. My husband loved the sauce and kept heaping it on. Our other son ate fish until the pan was empty. It was a huge hit at our house. I had some very spicy homemade BBQ sauce on hand that I used and I put a little extra BBQ in the sauce for extra flavor. I do not like my food to be mouth burning so I substituted smoked paprika for the cayenne. The fish turned out wonderfully moist and flavorful.
This recipe was too sweet and too blah for our taste.
This was the best snapper recipe I have tried. Very moist. Really flavorful. This was a hit in our house in would make this again.
