Riesling Snapper

Recipe by  

"The wine evaporated before cooking the fish gives it a very particular caramelized wine taste and doesn't need any sauce with it. Goes very well with any vegetable and will impress your guests by its subtlety (still being very fast and easy to prepare)."

  1. Pour Riesling wine into a large skillet over medium heat; cook until mostly evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir butter and garlic into remaining wine; cook and stir until the garlic softens and the butter melts completely, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Season red snapper fillets with salt and black pepper. Increase heat under the skillet to high; gently lie snapper fillets into the butter and garlic mixture. Cook about 3 minutes, turn, add the almonds, and continue cooking until the flesh of the snapper flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes more.

This was very quick and easy, but tasted like I know what I'm doing. I didn't have sliced almonds handy, so I put some fresh rosemary into the wine while it was reducing, then put some on top of the fish the last few minutes of cooking. Even my teenage son, who hates fish, thought it was good.

I didn't like the recipe or outcome at all. I followed the directions but the butter burned badly on the first batch-my fault. There was so much butter it seemed gross to fry the fish in all that grease. On my Try #2 I reduced the butter and followed the directions. The pan sauce still burns badly as it's mostly butter while you are cooking the fish. \ It was a good reisling but the flavor of this dish was not good!

Awesome. This was easy and fast. It came out great. Tried to add a photo but wouldn't upload. Added mashed red potatoes along with a honey and ginger salad. All ingredients found in publix.

I followed the recipe exact, but Added shallots, garlic, parsley. The sauce was wonderful and my guests I loved it. This is a keeper and will make it again.

This was very bland. The fish was cooked perfectly and moist, but it really needs citrus added.

I was very tempted to tweak this recipe - it just seemed too simple, with so few ingredients. I am SO glad that I didn't however. It was excellent! The blending of flavors was amazing and took me by surprise. We really enjoyed it and I will definitely be making it again.
