The terms baking and roasting are often used interchangeably when applied to fish and shellfish. One disadvantage of baking fish is the short baking time does not allow the surface of the fish to caramelize. To help correct this problem, fish can be seared in a sauté pan or the broiler with a small amount of oil. Then finish the fish in the oven.
You can change the protein to halibut or cod fillets in place of snapper in this recipe. The most popular seasonings for baked fish are lemon, butter, salt, and pepper. You can add fresh herbs such as rosemary, dill, and even basil to add great aromas to the fish recipe. In addition, you can marinate the fish before baking for added flavor too. You may partner this recipe with roasted broccolini or asparagus for a complete healthy meal.
