Red Snapper with Cilantro Butter

Serves 4
Time 30 min
This same cilantro butter works great when melted on other fish like salmon or tilapia. Or top baked potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes or steamed carrots with pats of the herb-flecked butter, too.

Method

Combine butter, cilantro, lemon or lime juice, zest, pinch of the salt and pinch of the pepper in a bowl and beat by hand with a wooden spoon. 

Transfer to a large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a log about 2-inches long and 1-inch wide. 

Roll up and wrap tightly with plastic wrap, then chill until firm.

Prepare a grill for medium-heat cooking, oiling the grill grates as needed. 

Rub fillets lightly with oil and season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. 

Arrange fillets on the grill. Cook, turning once, about 10 minutes; the fish is done when it turns from translucent to opaque throughout. 

Remove to a warmed platter or plates. 

Cut the cilantro butter into 4 equal slices, top each fillet with a slice and serve.
