The website also has a recipe for homemade tomato sauce to complement the Red Snapper.


  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1-1/2 tsp oregano, dried and crushed
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 6oz red snapper fillets
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • tomato sauce


Prepare marinade by blending lime juice, garlic, bay leaves, oregano, oil, salt and pepper in blender or food processor. Place fish in large baking dish and pour marinade over it. Cover and marinate about 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove fillets from marinade and place in another large baking dish. Bake until fish is done, about 15 minutes, basting occasionally with the tomato sauce.

Do not overcook.

To serve, place fillets on a platter and cover with warmed tomato sauce. Any extra sauce can be served on the side, accompanied with white rice.
