Grilled Red Snapper With Lime Butter

The sharp tang and buttery richness of the lime butter bring a fascinating note to this vividly seasoned snapper, creating culinary harmony on the dinner plate.


  • Butter, softened 1/4 cup 60 mL
  • Grated lime zest 1 tsp. 5 mL
  • Lime juice 1 tsp. 5 mL
  • Coarsely ground pepper 1/2 tsp. 2 mL
  • Lime juice 2 tbsp. 30 mL
  • Tex-Mex seasoning 2 tbsp. 30 mL
  • Brown sugar, packed 1 tbsp. 15 mL
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp. 15 mL
  • Coarse salt 1 tsp. 5 mL
  • Red snapper fillets 1 1/2 lbs. 680 g


  1. Beat first 4 ingredients until creamy. Spoon onto a sheet of waxed paper and form into a 2 inch (5 cm) long cylinder (see How To, page 186). Wrap tightly and freeze for about 1 hour until firm.
  2. Combine next 5 ingredients and spread over fillets. Chill, covered, for 30 minutes. Place fillets on a sheet of greased heavy-duty (or double layer of regular) foil. Cook on direct medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with sliced lime butter medallions.


ABOUT BUYING FISH FILLETS To ensure you’re buying fresh fish, check that: • the flesh colour is bright and consistent • the fish smells fresh and not “fishy” • the flesh is firm, elastic and moist—but not slimy • the cut edges are neat and clean
