Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Make three slashes across each side of the fish using a sharp knife. This will keep the fish from curling as it cooks. Place the fish in a shallow baking dish or roasting pan. Cover each side with fresh ginger, then green onions and tomatoes. Season with sea salt. Slice half of the lime and place the slices on top of the fish. Drizzle with the soy sauce, and squeeze the other half of the lime over the fish. Cut the lemon in half and set in the pan. Cover the whole dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake the fish until the flesh is opaque and can be flaked with a fork, about 20 minutes. Squeeze the baked lemon halves over the fish before serving. Serve the fillet on the top side first, then gently lift out the backbone, while helping the flesh off the bones with your knife. It's much easier than trying to turn the fish over.

This was FABULOUS! Snapper to me is somewhat strong, but this was the best. I did not have a lime so I used Pineapple chumks. Great combination with the Soy sauce. Family loved this!

I thought this was OK but if I make it again, I will drizzle it with a little fat; olive oil, sesame oil...just a little something to make it a little more satisfying. Loved the soy sauce flavor, though!

We tried this tonite, but used Lemon & Oranges instead of Limes on Snapper fillets. Quick, easy & light. Will make again.

Fantastic recipe! I did do some slight changes - added chopped ginger and extended the cooking time by 15 mins because the fish was undercooked at 20 minutes when I opened the foil. I also reduced the soy sauce from 1/3 cup to 1/4 cup to make it less salty. Overall, a great Chinese-restaurant style dish!

This was spectacular! We grilled it, because it's summer. We also used filets, because I bought the fish first, looked for a recipe second. My hubby, NOT a big fish fan, said it is 5-star restaurant quality. Definitely make again!

I used about 3# of snapper fillets ranging from 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick. They were baked to perfection after about 12 minutes.

Had this tonight and it exceeded my expectations! The ginger made it really hot and spicy, and i didnt even put the full amount. I'm giving it just a 4 because i need about 10 minutes more cooking time and i found that the soy sauce was too much.
